27 Incredible No-Bake Desserts

Sometimes your oven needs alone time. These desserts are okay with that.

1. Greek Yogurt Cheesecake With Pomegranate Syrup

2. Pumpkin Cream Pie With Maple Whipped Cream

Full disclosure: the gingersnap cookie crust in this pie and a few others below does call for a quick (like, 15-minute) pre-bake in the oven. That should be easy to do ahead of time, BUT if you're really opposed to that idea or for some reason don't actually have an oven, you can also just buy a pre-made cookie or graham cracker crust.

3. Nutella Cheesecake

4. Pumpkin Pecan Butter Tarts

5. Vanilla Spice Poached Pears

6. Pumpkin Cheesecake Trifles

7. Cinnamon Pecan Truffles

8. Peanut Butter Yogurt Pie

9. Gingersnap Crumble Pumpkin Parfaits

10. Chocolate Pumpkin Pie

11. Classic Icebox Cake

Cookies + whipped cream = happiness. Make it with Anna's ginger cookies instead of chocolate wafers for extra autumnal festivity. Get the recipe at Smitten Kitchen.

12. Raw Fig Cheesecake

This here is some nut-based vegan voodoo. The pretty pink comes from beet juice; pomegranate juice would probably work too. Get the recipe at Oh Lady Cakes.

13. Coffee S'Mores Pie

14. Fresh Orange And Yogurt Tart

15. Chocolate-Peanut Butter Mousse Tart

16. Vegan Pecan Pie Bars

These are healthy and raw and vegan and gluten-free and basically there is no one in the entire world who could fail to love them. Get the recipe at Damy Health.

17. Simple Chilled Pumpkin Cheesecake

18. Cider-Poached Apples with Candied Walnuts

19. Chocolate Truffle Cake

FYI, this "cake" is literally just a giant block of chocolate and cream. You're welcome. Get the recipe at 101 Cookbooks.

20. Banoffee Surprise Pie

SPOILER: The surprise is a layer of chocolate! "Banoffee" = banana + toffee, and this is a dessert British people have been appreciating for a long time. What better occasion than Thanksgiving to co-opt it? Get the recipe at Sprinkled With Flour.

21. Raw Caramel Apple Pie

22. Gingerbread Pumpkin Trifle With Cranberry Pomegranate Sauce

WHOA NELLY. This one's no-bake if you buy the gingerbread (or just make the bread ahead of time and then assemble the trifle on T-Day). Get the recipe at A Spicy Perspective.

23. Raw Pear Tart with Vanilla Cream

Vegan, too (the cream is made with cashews). Get the recipe at Just Eat Love.

24. Pumpkin Rice Pudding

25. Gingersnap Ice Cream Sandwiches

Find ginger cookies you like, put some awesome ice cream in between them, and freeze. Get a recipe to bake your own at Martha Stewart.

26. Caramel Apple Cheesecakes

27. Pecan Double Chocolate Torte
