A delicious summer tart that needs only 3 ingredients and 15 mins of active time, is filled with icecream and topped with your favorite fruits!
Recipe type: dessert
Cuisine: Continental
Serves: 10 slices
  • 250 g wholewheat oatmeal cookies
  • 75 g unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 litre butterscotch ice Cream (store bought), softened, leave out for 5-10 minutes before you need to fill the tart
  • ½ cup mango/strawberry/blueberry coulis (whichever you like, I went with mango coulis)
  • Your favorite seasonal fruits. I used mango, lychee, chickoo,plums,grapes.
  • Optional: Soak the fruits in kirsch or vodka for a gentle kick.
  1. I used a 21 cm spring form pan for this. You can use any tart pan of any shape with a removable base.
  2. Start by making the tart base:
Use a rolling pin to make fine crumbs of the cookies. Alternately use a processor. I prefer the rolling pin coz it provides better texture.
  1. Add the cubed butter to it and rub with your fingers till it reaches a sand like texture. Test a little by pressing some between your fingers, it should hold form.
  2. Spoon the crumb mixture into the tart pan and use your fingers to spread it all over the pan and over the sides. Then, press the mixture gently with the base of a small glass and ensure it sticks to the pan.
  3. Freeze for 30 minutes or longer till set.
  4. When frozen, (make sure of this), pour the softened ice cream on to the prepared tart case. Transfer to the freezer. Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  5. Remove from freezer 10 minutes before serving.
  6. Drizzle with whatever fruit puree you like and top with your favorite fruits. Dust with icing sugar.
  7. Serve!!
