Slideshow SLIDESHOW: 52 Desserts for Your Labor Day Feast

If summertime were a meal, Labor Day would be the dessert course—one of the last chances we get to celebrate all things summer before the leaves start falling and the chill sets in. And we can't think of any better way to combat that bittersweet Labor Day longing than by drowning it in pies and cakes, ice cream, and cookies al fresco. To make sure you respect the true spirit of the day, we've also thrown in a few no-bake recipes to keep your day truly labor-free. Start planning with a recipe from the list below or see them all in the slideshow!
