 Ingredients List



Parfait is a French word meaning "perfect." A phrase used by many to
describe this dish. American parfaits consist of ice cream served with
whipped cream, fruit, or other sauces piled in layers in a tall, narrow
glass called a "parfait glass." It is often topped with sweet whipped cream
and garnished with a maraschino cherry.

In a parfait glass or juice glass, alternate layers of ice cream with jam,
syrup, baby or junior fruit, or marshmallow cream. Here are some good
combinations you can use:

~-Strawberry ice cream and strawberry jam ~-Vanilla ice cream and red
raspberry jam ~-Cherry ice cream and almond-flavored whipped cream
~-Vanilla ice cream with apricot and apple, or pear and pineapple baby or
junior fruit ~-Chocolate ice cream and marshmallow cream.

Any combination of ice cream and sauce that strikes your fancy can be
tried, and can't help but be delicious!
