Just because it’s too hot to turn on my oven and bake doesn’t mean I’ve stopped craving dessert. I’ve solved that dilemma by serving up plenty of no-bake, frozen treats this summer. My family’s newest favorite is this Frozen Blackberry Cream Pie. It’s smooth, creamy and refreshing. Not to mention, delicious!
I definitely recommend having some fresh blackberries on hand for garnish. Their tartness is the perfect contrast to the sweetness of the pie. This is such an easy dessert to put together, I usually go ahead and make two pies–one for eating right away and one to keep in the freezer for later. Let the pie stand at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
