Fruit Smoothie Ice Cream TartThis special dessert takes some time and planning, but it features what has got to be the easiest homemade pie crust ever baked (at just 10 minutes’ oven time, it won’t heat up the kitchen too much either). And it’s just what you need to cool down on a hot summer night. Plain old vanilla ice cream gets blended with fresh fruit for three layers of flavor. Pettigru Place Bed & Breakfast, in Greenville, South Carolina, is the original home of  this recipe. They offer you a peaceful English garden within walking distance of all the downtown attractions.
