Although parfaits were originally served on decorative plates, today they are typically layered in tall, thin glasses in many variations from the original 19th century French recipe.
In America our parfaits are normally made by layering cream, ice cream, or flavored gelatin dessert with other ingredients such as granola, nuts, yogurt, syrups, liqueurs, fresh fruit, or whipped topping.
With all the busyness of the upcoming holiday season parfaits make the perfect grab and go breakfast or snack. Women's Day has 10 Irresistible Parfait Recipes you can add to your recipe file. Or just grab some frozen, fruit, Greek yogurt, granola or nuts, layer it in a glass or mug and you got yourself a parfait.
