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. =)
