You won’t miss a thing with these no-crust pies.
Admit it—you are one of those people who really don’t like piecrusts. Maybe you just haven’t yet cracked the code on baking a flaky, buttery piecrust. Or perhaps you have had your fill of soggy-bottomed pies with burned edges. No worries, you can still have a slice of pie for dessert! We scoured the internet (to save you some time) and rounded up five crust-free pie recipes we think are worth a try. You will notice the words “impossible” and “magic” used a lot—this is because, in some recipes, a crust magically forms as the pie bakes. Pies and cobblers have a place of honor on every dessert sideboard, but we think these crust-less options are just as tasty and memorable. The individual Crust-less Apple Pies are perfect for a small party or brunch, and the low calorie Impossible Pumpkin Pie might just become your favorite Thanksgiving dessert. The Magic Crust Custard Pie is fun to make—with just seven ingredients, you simply mix everything together in a food blender, pour into a pie plate a bake. There is a lot going on in the Crustless Ginger Blueberry-Pear Pie, but it is surprisingly light and refreshing. Crustless pies can be your go-to dessert any time of the year and, just like a pie with a crust, they partner perfectly with homemade ice cream or whipped topping. Try something different for dessert—we promise you will never miss the crust.
