Haven't you heard? It's Bakeless Sweets week on Food52! So naturally, the hottest topic in our office this week was this: 

What's your favorite bakeless desssert?

Are you an ice cream junkie? Or a whipped cream-and-fruit purist? Tell us in the comments! And if you need inspiration, enter to win a copy of Faith Durand's new book, Bakeless Sweets -- we're giving away five.

Merrill: Icebox cake!

Brette: Icebox cake with rainbow sprinkles!!

Michael: Coffee granita with whipped cream.

Lauren: Blueberries, sour cream, and brown sugar. 

Kristen: Mine is like Lauren's. Ripe peaches, milk, and dark brown sugar is magic. I tried to turn this into an ice cream once, but it wasn't as good.

Maddy: S'mores!

Sarah S: S'mores, always.

Kenzi: Anything that involves fresh fruit and lots of whipped cream. Also this.

Christina: Hazelnut gelato -- preferably on a cobblestone street in Italy.

Sarah J: Tiramisu. 

Will: Does rice pudding count?

Hannah: Banoffee pie in a glass. One for each hand is especially nice. 

Merrill: I'm adding a second: Banana Pudding.

Stephanie: Nanaimo bars. Yes, I'm pulling the Canadian card again. But they really are my favorite.

Bryce: I'm on a Coeur la Creme kick. Plus strawberries or blueberries.

Amanda: Berry and basil popsicles!

Margaret: Espresso chip ice cream with a chocolate bombe shell. As chocolate-y and coffee-y as possible, please.

Amanda Li: Macadamia nut ice cream. If that doesn't count, tiramisu +1!

Jennifer: Sliced summer peaches with whipped cream and a drizzle of Grand Marnier.

Marian: When I have time, I like making raw cashew cheesecakes with berries -- except for that one time when I accidentally baked one.

Tell us: what's your favorite no-bake dessert?
