Frozen raspberry-peach torte
SmartPoints® value per serving
This pretty torte uses store-bought ingredients and transforms them into a frozen dessert that looks and tastes beautifully homemade. Although this recipe might take a while to make, it's really due to the freezing and thawing times. The actual time you'll spent in the kitchen is minimal. What makes this cake picture perfect is its colorful layers of sorbet and vivid raspberry side sauce. It's a great dessert to make when you have guests coming for dinner, and always gets oohs and aahs when you serve it.
