Simple Summer Recipe

Every summer there comes at least one time or another when I get to make my favorite tasty dessert.  It has to really fit the occasion though-cause it's not really a dessert that tastes as good as a leftover, ya know?

So this year-it's our 4th of July neighborhood bar-b-que.

I'm bringing some of my fave foods; sliders, tomato mozz salad, rolopretz (rolos smashed between two square pretzels...YUMM!) and my parfait.

It's sooo pretty. Yet when you dig into it-it definitely isn't the prettiest dessert on the block! ha

And since I'm the FARTHEST from being a Pastry Chef - I'm game for the easy stuff.

Here's the recipe for my simple summer party parfait:



-- FRUIT GALORE!!  ie, Mangos, Strawberries, Rasberries, Blueberries, Bananas, Apples....etc. etc.  It really depends on what your fave fruits are.

*In this one:  Mangos, Strawberries, Rasberries, Blueberries

-- 2 boxes Pistachio Pudding (I used sugar free)

-- 2 tubs Cool Whip (I use sugar free)

-- Angelfood Cake (I used one this time-sometimes use two though)

-- Strawberry Glaze


-- Get a clear round dish (however deep you need for the layers)

-- Start at the bottom, LAYER angelfood cake, then glaze, then fruit (I used Mangos), then cool whip, then strawberries, then pistachio pudding, then cool whip, rasberries & blueberries on top.  (sometimes I'll also use kiwi on top...LOVE making it colorful.)

Refrigerate till serving time.....

WAA-LAA!!!  Seriously THAT easy.  =)
