For another simple dessert, place watermelon cubes in 4 separate bowls, and drizzle them with a mixture of 1/4 cup each of honey and lime juice, 2 tablespoons of salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger. To make a peach and raspberry parfait, cut 2 peaches into 2.5-inch pieces, and combine them in a bowl with 1 1/2 cups of raspberries, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Let the mixture sit for 20 minutes, gently stirring once. Scoop vanilla ice cream into glasses or bowls, and top it with the fruit mixture.

For another easy dessert, soften 2 refrigerated pie crusts, and unroll and stack them on a lightly floured surface. Roll them out into a 17- by 12-inch rectangle, and fit them into a 15- by 10- by 1-inch pan, pressing into the corners and folding the crust until even with the sides of the pan. Crimp the edges. Mix 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of cornstarch and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in a bowl. Stir in 9 cups of thawed and drained frozen sliced peaches. Sprinkle a half-roll of crumbled refrigerated sugar cookies over the filling, and bake it at 375 degree Fahrenheit for 60 minutes. Cool the desert. Cut it into squares.
