Iced Tea Parfaits Recipe

Here’s a parfait that’s perfect for a garden or patio party. Tea adds a wonderfully unexpected flavor to gelatin. And kids will have fun finding the cherry at the bottom.—Teena Petrus, Johnstown, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 cups water
  • 3 tea bags
  • 1 package (3 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 4 maraschino cherries
  • 1-1/2 cups whipped topping, divided

  • 1. In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Remove from the heat; add tea bags. Cover and steep for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags. Stir gelatin into tea until completely dissolved. Cool slightly.
  • 2. Pour 1/4 cup gelatin mixture into each of four parfait glasses. Place a cherry in each glass; refrigerate until set but not firm, about 1 hour. Transfer remaining gelatin mixture to a small bowl; refrigerate for 1 hour or until soft-set.
