A homemade pie might not be in the cards, and that's totally okay because you still have a lot of options to choose from. No matter what your schedule looks like, there's a dessert in this lineup for you. No-bake Rice Krispies treats come together in a flash, and cookies are just as easy. A rustic galette is my favorite quick alternative to pie — you can even start with a store-bought crust.
