EVERY TIME I serve this simple but elegant dessert to guests, I have to give them the recipe, too.
I found this dessert recipe in the early '50s and since then, it has earned a place in my tried-and-true file.
I had to make adjustments to prepare it for two people, but it can be easily increased to serve any number.

I used to serve these simple yet impressive parfaits when we ran a motel and restaurant. Now I serve them to guests. You can substitute other seasonal fruit, like peaches or strawberries.—Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington
Time to take out those parfaits glasses! This is one of those elegant, but effortless recipes perfect for simple summer entertaining. Country Woman's taste panel loved the texture contrast between the smooth, creamy berry mixture and the buttery, crunchy topping. Carol Anderson, Salt Lake City, says this is "so delicious and refreshing on a warm summer's evening."
"Cherry Cream Parfaits are lovely and special desserts that look fussy but are really easy to fix," assures Jeanette Mack of Rushville, New York. "I've also made them using other pie fillings like strawberry, raspberry and blueberry."
