I don’t know how these little desserts could get any more perfect, but they can. You can make these beauts ahead of time, stick them in the refrigerator and pull them out to wow your crowd. I even found myself sneaking one of them for breakfast and was not ashamed about it.

  • Author: KJ & Company - Kate Poskochil
  • Prep Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 5 - 7oz parfaits

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 5 tablespoons sugar, plus 1 teaspoon
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup crushed graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 cups strawberries, cut into 1-inch pieces

Instructions

  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk the heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy and stiff peaks form, about 3-5 minutes. Carefully spoon the whipped cream into a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the cream cheese and 2 tablespoons of sugar into the bowl of the electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whisk and beat it on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Carefully spoon the whipped cream back into the cream cheese mixture and whisk the mixture on low speed until smooth and combined, about 3-5 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, toss the cut strawberries with the remaining 1 teaspoon of sugar and set aside. In a separate small bowl, mix together the graham crackers and melted butter until combined.
  4. Put the cheesecake filling into a piping bag or plastic storage bag with a corner cut off to easily fill your parfaits. Drain off any excess liquid that the strawberries have from sitting in the sugar.
  5. Assemble your parfaits by splitting the ingredients evenly between the ramekins. Pipe the cheesecake filling into the bottom, layer with the graham cracker crumble then the cut strawberries and repeat until your ramekins are filled. Serve immediately or prepare up to a day in advance and keep them in the refrigerator. Decorate the tops with additional strawberries or graham cracker crumble.

Notes

You can layer the parfaits in any order that you please! They will still taste the same.
