apple pie parfaits

  • Serves 4
  • Prep time: 20 minutes
  • 3 medium apples, peeled, cored, and diced small (I used Pink Ladies)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 full honey graham cracker, crumbled


In a medium non-stick pan, over medium-high heat, melt butter and saute apples for 4 minutes. Add in brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt; cook for 1-2 more minutes (longer if you want your apples really soft.) Transfer to a plate or bowl to cool.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer on high, whip cream, sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks form, about 1 minute.

Evenly distribute the apple mixture and whipped cream, alternating layers, among 4 dessert cups. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs and a pinch more cinnamon, if you wish. Serve right away or chilled. They're absolutely delish!
