Lemon Curd Parfaits

Use prepared Lemon curd and frozen whipped topping for a simple but elegant dessert. Or make your own, it is your call depending on how much time you have.

Serves 6


1 1/2 cups chilled whipping cream (or 1 container frozen whipped topping)
1/3 cup powdered sugar
One 8 ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/4 cups purchased lemon curd
ΒΌ cup graham cracker or ground ginger snaps
6-8 ounces fruit of choice (such as raspberries, blueberries, strawberries)


Using electric mixer, beat cream in large bowl until stiff peaks form, add powder sugar and mix until well blended. In another bowl, whip cream cheese until fluffy and fold in whipped cream or frozen whipped topping.

Divide whipped cream mixture among six 6-8-ounce wineglasses or dessert cups. NOTE: place 2 large tablespoons whipped cream into bottom of each cup or glass. Layer each cup with equal amounts of the lemon curd. Top each cup with remaining whipped cream. Cover and chill until parfaits are cold, at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day.
