No-Bake Honey Whiskey Pie With A Cookie Crust

I love making pies for dessert and a no-bake pie has got to be one of the easiest options. The creamy texture of this No-bake Honey Whiskey Pie is unbelievable. It has so many different flavors – from the boozy whiskey to a touch of coffee in the whipped topping. Plus, the crust is homemade and tastes so much better than store-bought (but still easy to make). It’s a great dessert for any special occasion- especially for whiskey fans.

Easy and creamy, this No-Bake Honey Whiskey Pie is a crowd favorite. It has a cookie bottom crust, creamy chilled filling and whipped topping.

My Husband is a huge whiskey connoisseur and he is the muse behind this pie. We collect different types of Whiskey from our travels and I love using some in my baking. It adds a great depth of flavor to match our southern heritage. You can’t go wrong with adding a bit of whiskey to anything.

The best part about baking with whiskey is that you don’t need to use your favorite top-shelf bottle. You can use a less expensive brand and still have a great tasting pie. For this recipe, I like a honey whiskey. My favorite honey whiskey is Tennessee Honey Jack Daniels and you can find it nationwide.

Pies are my favorite dessert to make. Looking for other pie ideas? I’ve got you covered with these fabulous pie recipes:

For this recipe you’ll want to use a 9-inch pie dish. It’s a great kitchen staple that everyone needs, I use mine all of the time – but especially for holidays. I prefer a glass 9-inch pie dish for easy and even baking.

If you want to be fancy, you can us a Piping Bag and Tips for the whipped topping. It always looks fantastic. However, you can certainly use a spatula to evenly spread it.

What To Serve With Honey Whiskey Pie

I love to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream with this pie. The cold temperature of the ice cream balances the pie and tastes great. Since it already has a whipped topping, I would pass on anything else whipped. The pie also goes great with an ice cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee for dessert.

How To Make This Pie Ahead Of Time

If you’re serving this Honey Whiskey Pie for a special occasion, you can certainly make the majority of it ahead of time. The day before the gathering, you’ll make the crust and the filling. You can refrigerate the filling overnight and then just complete the topping right before serving. Making the topping only takes a few minutes to throw together. I like the taste of the filling being completely chilled too.

How To Store Leftover Honey Whiskey Pie

Cover any leftovers with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator. The pie is good for 3-4 days and you don’t have to let it thaw to room temperature either – just serve it directly from the fridge. I do not recommend freezing this pie.

  • Graham Crackers (or Graham Cracker crumbs)
  • Unsalted Butter

  • Heavy Whipping Cream
