Tips For Making A No Bake Pie
- Plan Ahead : It's important to plan ahead when making a no bake pie because they are so much better with at least 8 hours of refrigeration time. I prefer to make the pie the day before and let it refrigerate for 24 hours before serving. No bake pies will get thicker, creamier, and better with time in the fridge.
- Quality Ingredients : I am a fan of saving money anyway I can, especially at the grocery store, but when buying cream cheese for these recipes buy the name brand stuff (Philadelphia). It has the best thick texture and the best flavor for these pies.
- Full Fat Dairy : When making no bake pies, that usually call for cream cheese, Cool Whip, and sometimes sour cream, be sure and use the full-fat products. The light stuff or reduced-fat has a thinner texture to it (more water) and the taste is not as good. Full fat also offers the better texture for pies.
- Make It Easy : Most of these pies call for a store-bought graham cracker or Oreo crust. Make it easy on yourself and use the store-bought crusts. I actually prefer them over homemade because they hold together better. Whenever I make my own crumb crust they always fall apart when slicing and you end up with lots of loose crust crumbs. Some of the recipes call for Cool Whip and some call for freshly whipped cream (from heavy whipping cream). These recipes were designed to be yummy so use Cool Whip when it's called for. Of course, you can always substitute homemade but easy is good, right?!
