Oatmeal and Fresh Berry Parfaits with Chantilly Cream from 'Treme'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Parfaits are not my usual choice when it comes to dessert, despite my penchant for sweets made primarily with berries and cream. Something about layering everything in a tall glass strikes me as fussy. But that's not a good enough reason to miss this delightful, slightly boozy parfait from the new Treme cookbook. More

Cakespy: Leftover Pie Parfait

Sweets cakespy Post a comment

The composition of your parfait is your own adventure. The basic rule is that you want to choose an ice cream, a topping, and a sauce which act either in harmony or in unison with your pie flavor: for instance, you could compose a harmonious concoction by pairing a slightly tart apple pie with cinnamon ice cream, graham cracker crumbles, and caramel sauce; or, you could go matchy-matchy and pair a slice of grasshopper pie with mint chocolate chip ice cream, thin mints, and chocolate sauce.

Chocoholic: Chocolate "Dirt" Pudding Pots

Sweets Yvonne Ruperti 6 comments

Whoever came up with the idea of using crushed chocolate cookies to simulate dirt on food is a complete genius. Nothing else so perfectly mimics dark, moist, peaty soil, and as a cake decorator, I've had a blast conceiving all sorts of kid's cakes with the stuff. Unfortunately, most chocolate dirt desserts are sort of trashy: layers of boxed instant chocolate pudding, Oreo cookie crumbs, Cool Whip non-dairy topping, all decorated with handfuls of squiggly neon gummy worms. I decided to challenge myself by making this mash-up with some good, wholesome ingredients and a fresh design with adult appeal. More

American Classics: Thin Mint Grasshopper Parfaits

Sweets Alexandra Penfold Post a comment

In honor of Girl Scout Cookie Week—and who am I kidding, the upcoming Mad Men Season 5 premiere—I wanted to take my favorite cookie and give it a decidedly 1960's dessert treatment, parfait-style, layering liquor-laced Grasshopper pie filling with my beloved Thin Mints. More

Perfect Passion Fruit Parfait

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 1 comment

Not your typical American layered fruit and cream parfait, this is more of a French variation, a light and airy frozen mousse. Passion fruit purée can be a little hard to come by, but you can easily substitute reduced passion fruit juice for that same sweet and tangy tropical taste. More
