Why not throw together a couple delicious fall treats without ever turning the oven on? Removing baking from the equation speeds up your prep time and removes an imposing barrier that usually keeps us from baking: baking! Try these no-bake autumn desserts and let us know how it goes!
Pumpkin Ice Cream Sandwiches!
Mix heavy whipping cream with pureed pumpkin that you scooped out of your pumpkin before you carved your Jack-O-Lantern (or from a can!). Stir in a dash of pumpkin pie spice to add an aromatic quality to your dessert! Then smear this delicious mixture onto graham cracker squares, placing a square on top to make a mini-sandwich! Freeze, then enjoy!
Pumpkin Pie Bites!
Mix cool whip, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spices, softened cream cheese, and a bit of sugar to taste. Place this in a clean Ziploc bag and cut a tiny hole in the corner! Squirt enough to fill each phyllo cup (you can find phyllo dough cups in the frozen section of your grocery store!) and then place one half-pecan on top as decoration! You can also lightly dust with cinnamon to add aesthetic appeal to these bite-sized yummies!
