No Cook Dessert Recipes

Graham Cracker Icebox Cake. Linda Larsen

Even when it's steaming outside, you still want dessert. Something cool and creamy will help you feel cooler. And these recipes are so easy to make! They require no heat at all. Enjoy a creamy almost instant cheesecake, or wait a bit longer for some delicious concoction to freeze.

Every so often I like to take some time and browse through the frozen aisle of the supermarket. You'll find many new varieties and flavors of ice cream and frozen desserts to inspire you.

In fact, the easiest no cook dessert is just some fabulous ice cream layered with indulgent toppings in a purchased cookie crust!

No Cook Dessert Recipes

  • Fastest Cheesecake
    I love this recipe and it works for me every time. Be sure to use full fat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk, and don't skimp on the lemon juice. If the cheesecake doesn't set enough for you, freeze it!
  • Chocolate Crunch Peanut Butter Ice Cream Cake
    I invented this recipe from a combination of several others, and it's now my favorite frozen dessert. You won't believe how good it is!
  • Graham Cracker Icebox Cake
    This old fashioned dessert is just scrumptious. It's so easy to make too; just layer graham crackers with pudding, top with frosting, and chill!
  • Old Fashioned Chocolate Dessert
    This is one of the oldest dessert recipes in my repertoire. It's very easy to make, although you have to wait a while to eat it, so the chocolate cookies can soften in the whipped cream.
  • No Bake Chocolate Cupcakes
    Did you know you can actually make cupcakes without baking? This wonderful recipe is perfect for an activity with your kids.
  • Lemonade Pie
    This pie tastes like a cool glass of lemonade frozen in a pie crust. What more do I need to say?
