Vanilla Wafer and Berry Parfaits

Wednesday, June 25, 2014
During the summer months, I am always looking for light desserts that I can throw together in a matter of minutes. This one uses one of my all-time favorite cookies and fresh, local berries.

Vanilla Wafer and Berry Parfaits

Vanilla Wafers (about 10 per parfait)
Strawberries, hulled and sliced
Whipped cream (canned or homemade, or non-dairy whipped topping such as Cool Whip)
Mints sprigs as garnish (optional)

1. In dessert dishes or small juice glasses, crumble a layer of vanilla wafers (about 3-5 cookies
depending on the circumference of the glass)

2. Layer 2-3 generous dollops of whipped cream on top of vanilla wafers.

3. Top with various berries.

4. Repeat layers until you reach the top of the glass, making sure to end with a layer of berries on top.

5. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
