A roundup of delicious no bake desserts for when your sweet tooth is calling but it’s too hot to turn the oven on!
It’s summer time and the humidity is at an all time high, so the last thing you want to do is turn the oven on right? I mean I don’t know about when the summer heat kicks up I want to keep my oven off as much as possible. But you still want dessert right? Yea, me too. Skip dessert just because it’s hot outside? Oh heck no. Never.
I love that with no bake, it’s more about assembly of the ingredients, maybe a little patience throw in while the dessert sets up in the fridge, and total success. No waiting around wondering if that cake will come out fluffy and tall, or if those cookies will spread just the right amount in the fridge. I mean it’s summer, less stress and more sunshine am I right?

No Bake Turtle Pie
For the crust
- 26 Oreo cookies
- 5 Tablespoons (3/4 stick, 3 ounces) unsalted butter melted
- 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
For the filling
- 16 ounces (2 blocks) cream cheese softened
- 1 1/3 cups (159 g) powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) heavy cream cold
- 3/4 cup caramel homemade or store-bought
- garnish: pecans, hot fudge, caramel, and whipped cream
- To make the oreo crust: Place cookies in a food processor and pulse until the cookies have become crumbs. You can also turn the cookies into crumbs by placing the cookies into a zip-loc bag and crust them with a rolling pin. Add the melted butter and pinch of salt to the crumbs and pulse to combine. (If making without the food processor, transfer the crumbs to a bowl and stir the sugar and butter in with a fork) Using the bottom of the measuring cup, press the crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch plate. You can also use a 9-inch square pan or 9-inch springform pan. Chill the crust before filling for 30 minutes.
- To make the filling: Cream the cream cheese and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the caramel. Cream until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, whip the cold heavy cream until soft peaks form. Then fold into the caramel filling.
- Spread the filling into the prepared Oreo crust and chill about 4 hours. Garnish: top with toasted pecan halves, hot fudge, and caramel, whipped cream!
- Pan Size: I used a 9″ deep dish pie plate. If your pie plate isn’t as deep then you may need to mound the filling slightly.
- Refrigerate the pie crust before filling at least 30 minutes
- Use softened cream cheese so its easier mixed into the sugar.
- Spray the measuring cup for the caramel with a bit of non-stick spray before measuring. This way it will release much easier!
- Make this pie the night before for an easy dessert to pull together! Do not garnish until right before serving.
