Cool Summer Desserts

No baking involved!

Who wants to bake during the summer months? Frankly, the smell is worth it, but not if it also warms up your house! That's why summer sweets should stay that way--sweet--without adding any heat. Celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli of the Food Network has some really great cool dessert recipes that work really well for the summer months.

Looking at her strawberry ice cream pie, I have to say... I want some. Now. And I'm indoors and not even hot. She also has a blackberry crumble that looks incredible, a no-bake cheesecake and a strawberry biscuit sheet cake. That last one doesn't look as appealing to me as the others, but hey, maybe it's delicious! It says it's actually a Martha Stewart recipe.
