Have you ever made Sheet Pan Desserts? There’s just something about being able to make a bunch of sweet treats at a time and having very few dishes to wash that I find very satisfying.

Sheet Pan Desserts

These recipes promise a hassle-free and delicious way to satisfy a crowd’s sweet cravings with minimal cleanup. Slab pies, cookies, bars, and brownies can all be done in a sheet pan!

1. Pumpkin Bars

Enjoy pumpkin in more ways than just a latte or pie. Try these tasty pumpkin bars. They’re an incredible fall delight with flavors you’ll want to eat year-round.

2. Cream Cheese Banana Bars

Typically, banana cream pie is kind of a messy dessert. This sheet pan version of the southern classic comes with a tangy cream cheese frosting and a powerful banana punch that can be frozen for a sweet treat later in the week!

3. Strawberry Slab Pie

Strawberry slab pie takes the flavor of summer and compresses it into one incredible bite (or several). The lemony cream cheese filling pairs perfectly with a flaky crust and sweetened strawberries for a dreamy, easy recipe.

4. Lemon Meringue Slab Pie

Lemon meringue is arguably one of the best desserts on the planet, and it’s made even better in slab pie form! It’s incredible for serving large groups and ideal for gatherings in the springtime, with a fresh kick of lemon in every bite.

5. Blueberry Slab Pie

Blueberry pie is a dream, especially in the summer. This slab pie is a little easier to make and offers pie in a larger form, which means you can serve multiple servings at once.

6. Mississippi Mud Brownies

Mississippi Mud Cake is a recipe that has gone viral on the internet for its tasty combination of chocolate and marshmallow, and this sheet pan dessert makes it even richer by turning it into a brownie. You can freeze them for three months!

7. No-Flour Monster Cookie Bars

Need to avoid flour but are craving a good cookie? In come these no-flour monster cookie bars! Made with oats, M&Ms, and peanut butter, even gluten-free friends can enjoy the sheet pan dessert if you use gluten-free oats.

8. Chocolate Chip Pecan Blondies

Blondies are the best of both worlds. These chocolate chip pecan blondies are a combination of a cookie and a brownie, adding sweet chocolate chips and crunchy pecans for a more complex flavor. They’re super easy to make!

9. Homemade Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars

Snickerdoodles in a sheet pan dessert form are thicker, more buttery, and bigger than their classic cookie counterparts! They’re simple to pull together and great for feeding a crowd.

10. Lemon Bars

If you go to any gathering during the summer or spring, you’ll see a tray of lemon bars. This recipe is the best because it uses shortbread as a crust, offering a lovely buttery contrast to the tartness of the lemon.

11. Cherry Pie Bars

Cherry pie bars are one of the prettiest desserts you will ever see, filled with a gorgeous bright red cherry filling that’s great for the holidays. If you don’t like cherry, you can always swap it out for another pie-filling fruit, like blueberry!
