My layered dessert looks so elegant and pretty. It gets compliments every time I serve it. Parfaits are a traditional part of our Fourth of July buffet. —Clare Hafferman, Kalispell, Montana

"I agree with lilHobbit.....this was fabulous!! And yes, I will be making this again but not everyday for the next several days. This is something that I am going to save for one of my husbands and my "date night" when we have raspberries in season. Thanks for the recipe Clare!!"

"It was very very good, did not care if it is too fattening, not like omeone is going to eat it 24/7,was a nice change of pace from the diet."

"This receipe may be to fattening for some, but for my daughter who has cancer and having chemo, this is perfect. The taste is fantastic. Will make again, maybe try using blueberries."

"Altogether way too fattening! There are other recipes using fresh raspberries without incorporating heavy whipping cream into the mix."
