No-Bake Recipes: 5 Thanksgiving Pies

Updated on November 19, 2012

5 No-Bake Thanksgiving Pies

What if you could get back a little bit of the time you spend cooking for Thanksgiving by including a no-bake pie in your menu? As a foodie, I am all about the delicious food that comes with the Thanksgiving holiday celebration, but I am even more about getting to spend quality time together with my family. It's the memories made during that time that will mean the most at a later date, not the pie we had for dessert!

In this lens, you will find five no-bake pie ideas, two that are video demonstrations and three with links to the recipes that you might be interested in considering as you make plans for your family's Thanksgiving menu. We recently started trying something new along with some classics each year. We found we enjoyed having a little variety rather than the same menu every single year. Why not try an easy, no-bake Thanksgiving pie recipe this year?

Last year, we enjoyed trying a few new recipes, added in with some classics, too.

No-Bake Mini Lemon Cream Cheese Pies

We love lemon in our home, and I also love the idea of mini pies where each person has a ready-made serving without the hassle of having to cut pieces out of a bigger pie. Can you tell I like easy?! As long as you aren't sacrificing taste, which from the looks of these photos, won't be a problem with these pie recipes.

You can get the recipe for these at Barbara Bakes.

How to Make No-Bake Sweet Potato Pie

#5 - No-Bake Apple Pie Inspired by Caramel Apples

Last but not least, what about a pie with the popular fall ingredient, apples, and better yet, that also includes caramel? Yum. For a drool-worthy photo and to get the recipe, please visit The Washington Examiner.

I am not a huge sweet eater, but I must say I love a good apple pie. I'm wondering if the caramel might make this one too rich for me, but I'm always willing to give one as delicious-looking as this one a try!

Bonus Thanksgiving recipes :)
