In France, parfait refers to a frozen dessert made from a base of sugar syrup, egg, and cream.  In The United States, parfait refers to either the traditional French-style dessert or to a popular variant, the American parfait, made by layering parfait cream, ice cream, and/or flavored gelatin in a tall, clear glass, and topping the creation with whipped cream, fresh or canned fruit, and/or liqueurs.

Parfait > is from the word “perfect” and  pronounced as “Parfee” the T is silent.

The best part about parfait, is that while making them there are no rules. You can use fruits, oats, yogurt, ice cream, chocolate chip, any type of syrup, the list is endless.

There are two main versions to making any type of parfait- It could be in a dessert version or a breakfast version, and that’s what I made today morning. Seat tight for the final outcome.
