A parfait can be eaten at anytime of the day or night. There are even breakfast parfait recipes! It is no longer just a French dessert.
A parfait is the perfect way to rescue a dessert – and make it even better. Broken cookies, brownies, pies & crumbles can be “repurposed” as a parfait recipe when put in a glass with whipped cream!
Did you know parfait means ‘perfect’ in French?
In France, where the dish originated, a parfait is made by boiling cream, egg, sugar and syrup to create a custard puree and serving it chilled in a parfait glass.
No layering involved.
In North America, our parfait recipes involve layering our favorite foods with whipped cream.
We also make awesome breakfast parfait recipes because we want to begin our day with excitement. We layer fruit, chia pudding, yogurt, jam, nuts, seeds or granola for good morning goodness. When you layer it in a glass it’s a parfait!
