Autumn Apple Parfait

I adore apple pie, don’t you ? I can honestly say that my favorite part of apple pie is that scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I figured since my favorite part was the ice cream that I should make a dessert that was mostly ice cream. Sounds good to me! After church last night ( I can honestly say I did  listen to the sermon and it was amazing, but this recipe was on my mind too, I think I was just hungry) I came home and created this… I can’t say if it’s an original recipe or not, but it’s what I had in my head!


You’ll need:

1 red apple

1 granny smith apple

1/2 stick unsalted butter

1/2 sleeve of graham crackers ( crushed up a bit )

1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup light brown sugar ( packed)

pinch salt

Vanilla Ice Cream

The how-to:

Dice each apple into bite sized pieces.

Heat the butter in a nonstick skillet over med high heat. Add the apples as soon as it has melted and stir well. Reduced heat to med after 4-5 minutes.

Add the cinnamon and the brown sugar and stir well.

Allow to cook for 6 minutes and then remove from heat stirring well and often. Let sit off the heat for 5 minutes.

In parfait glass ( or bowl) add just a bit of the apples and then 2-3 scoops of ice cream. Top with more apples and sprinkle with the graham crackers.

Serve immediately.

Makes about 3-4 servings.

Happy Fall Y’all !!!
