Raspberry Parfaits

Layered desserts are so pretty and elegant that they always get oohs and aahs when served. This very simple recipe is one of our favorites because it's quick to prepare and can be made a day ahead of serving. For a patriotic Fourth of July theme, alternate layers of red raspberries and blueberries.

Prep time: 0 min | Total time: 0 min | 6 Servings

Ingredients

1 cup

cream cheese (8 ounces, at room temperature)

⅓ cup

confectioner's sugar (or more to taste)

1 cup

heavy (whipping) cream

grated zest of 1 lemon

1 tsp

fresh lemon juice (or more to taste)

2 us liquid pint

fresh raspberries (or combination of berries)

Fresh mint sprigs (as garnish)

Directions

Place the cream cheese and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is fluffy. Slowly add the heavy cream, beating until all of it is incorporated. Add the lemon zest and lemon juice. Taste and adjust the sugar and lemon juice as desired.

If you don't have parfait glasses, use wine goblets or martini glasses. Place a layer of berries (about one inch high) in each glass and top with a dollop of cream. Repeat, alternating berries with a layer of cream, until you have 3 layers of berries, ending with a dollop of cream on the top. Garnish the parfaits with one or two raspberries and a sprig of mint. If not serving immediately, refrigerate.
