How to Make a No-Bake Cream Pie in 6 Easy Steps

There are two types of cream pie: baked and no-bake. If you’re looking to pull together an easy cream pie in a jiffy, I suggest opting for the no-bake variety. A no-bake cream pie is much easier to make and, since it can be made using store-bought mixes, you can create one in any flavor combination you desire.

How to Make a No-Bake Cream Pie in 6 Easy Steps

Step 1: Select Your Pie Crust

Personally, I prefer crumb crusts for my no-bake cream pies, but you can use a traditional baked crust. If you go with that option, be sure that the crust is not only fully baked but cooled down, as well, before adding the filling.

Step 2: Select Your Cream Filling

The easiest way to do this is to choose your favorite instant pudding mix. You can mix it according to the instructions on the box or, for a fluffier filling, beat it with an electric mixer. To make it even more fluffy, add in 1 cup heavy cream once the pudding starts to thicken and beat until light, fluffy and forming soft peaks.

Step 3: Pour the filling into the crust.

This is the easy step… just pour it in and smooth it out.

Step 4: Select your topping.

My favorite cream pie topping is whipped cream or another whipped topping. Although, some people use meringue.

Step 5: Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

This step helps the ingredients set and makes serving the pie much easier.

Step 6: Garnish and enjoy!

You can put a mint leaf on top of each slice, sprinkle with Jimmies or nuts, or even add some chocolate shavings. How you garnish your cream pie is up to you!
