No-bake desserts are great when you don't have a lot of time on your hands to whip up something from scratch. They are quick, easy, and equally as delicious as oven-baked goods, too! Keep these ingredients in your pantry at all times and make no-baking your new weekend hobby. 


1  Cookies, biscuits, and crackers


Crush them with a rolling pin or blitz them in a food processor with a knob of butter and you have yourself a delicious no-bake crust for pies and cheesecakes. Our favorites are butter cookies, graham crackers, and ginger cookies.
