In Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Margaret McCoy whips up this family-pleaser in no time. "It forms two layers—a creamier bottom and foamier top—that make it took fancy" she reports. "But it takes just minutes to blend together."


  • 1 quart vanilla ice cream
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) strawberry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water


  1. Spoon ice cream into a large bowl. Dissolve gelatin in water; pour over the ice cream and blend well. Pour into parfait glasses. Refrigerate until set, about 1-1/2 hours.
Editor's Note: An ungreased 11x7x2-in. pan may be used instead of the parfait glasses. Cut into squares to serve.
