Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 3 individual tea bags
  • 1 package (3 ounces) lemon gelatin
  • 4 maraschino cherries

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.
Whisk remaining gelatin mixture for 2-3 minutes or until smooth. Stir in 1/2 cup whipped topping; spoon into parfait glasses. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, top with remaining whipped topping and garnish with lemon slices. Yield: 4 servings.
