What is a Parfait?

A parfait is a delicious dessert that originated in France. Traditionally, parfaits are made up of layers of various ingredients, such as yogurt, fruit, granola, and whipped cream. These eye catching desserts are often served in a glass jar to show off their beauty. The beauty of this dessert is that it an be customized to suit any taste. Although parfaits were originally created as a dessert, they are also known to be great for breakfast as well.

To embrace seasonal flavors, we’re making the star of this parfait pumpkin pie.

Pumpkin Pie Parfait

As I searched for the perfect pumpkin-pie-inspired dessert (without it being actual pumpkin pie), I found several ‘no-bake’ options. However, I felt that these strayed from the true essence of a pumpkin pie-inspired treat. I wanted an authentic pumpkin pie flavor, which is why I made the deliberate choice to bake the pumpkin puree for the parfait. This added the genuine pumpkin pie flavor I was looking for. After all, why settle for a replica when it’s effortless to recreate the real thing?

A Few Tips

  1. The easiest way to get the pumpkin mixture in the jar or glass is by piping it. If you don’t already have a piping bag, don’t worry, it’s so easy to make at home. Use a plastic bag and cut the corner off with scissors. The piping bag is less messy but a spoon always works too.
  2. Layering your parfait, remember, there is no WRONG way to layer a parfait. I’ve provided two examples above but you can layer your parfait any way you prefer.
  3. If you want to make your parfaits ahead of time, I recommend storing your ingredients separately until it’s time to eat.
