11 Easy Icebox Pie Recipes We Love
It’s no secret: Southerners are crazy about icebox pies, and there are plenty of reasons why. During hot summers (and springs, falls, and even winters) in the South, turning on the oven negates that wonderful air conditioning and makes baking synonymous with sweating. Icebox pies require little baking, if any at all. Often nestled in a crushed cracker crust (graham, buttery, gingersnap, and even saltine crackers make our list), icebox pies remind us that simple is sometimes better. If you have a little time to kill but want a low-effort dessert, these icebox pies are for you. They’ll need some time to cool and set, but you won’t spend but a few minutes working on them yourself. Icebox pies usually have accessible, affordable ingredient lists using store-bought pantry staples like condensed milk and pudding packets. Whip up a cool and creamy dessert in no time with these easy icebox pie recipes.
