I get "oohs" and "aahs" when setting out this cool, fruity dessert. It combines my three all-time favorites-peaches, strawberries and ice cream. It's so simple I can assemble it for company after we all finish the main course.

"This dessert in the wintertime is a wonderful reminder of summer. I actually don't remove the pulp and it is really nic."
