We’ve all been there: preparing to entertain family or friends, cooking up some tasty pies or cookies in the oven, and then you heat up the entire house. You’re sweating and so are your guests. Ooops.
This year, how about making some easy, no-bake desserts to complement what’s on the grill? These sweets will solve your oven dilemma – and you can even make them the night before!
On the Lighter Side
If you want to go “no bake” but you want to offer a nutritious and delicious option, go for oatmeal cookies.
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
2 tablespoons fat free milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons peanut butter, crunchy
1/2 cup quick-cook rolling oats
1. Combine sugar, milk and cocoa in a 4-cup microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high 1-1 1/4 minutes in the microwave, until it’s boiling. Stir once
2. Add in peanut butter and vanilla and stir until it’s blended
3. Stir in oats until well combined
4. Drop cookies by the spoonfuls onto wax paper-lined plates
Chill in freezer for 10 minutes before serving
Creamy Does it
Nothing says “summer” like cream cheese pies to follow the grilled hamburgers and hotdogs. Slide your spoon into the whippy, sweet filling and taste the cool chill. It’s the perfect finale to that summer party. Dig. In.
No Oven Required
As if it couldn’t get any better. Think s’mores, ice cream pies and ice cream sandwiches. No oven required.
Pie in the Sky
Looking for that special summer treat that will bring a little more flavor to the table? Look no further. Two words say it all: Peanut. Butter.
