4th of July Patriotic Parfaits

In honor of the 4th we decided to make Patriotic Parfaits!!! This is an amazing recipe I found on an amazing blog that y'all need to check out called Bubbly Nature Creations. These little treats are like a part-aaay in yer mouth.



This looks HUGE, however it is a little tiny cup!
This recipe makes about 4 -6 individual servings depending on the size of your dessert cups.



How did we make these tasty little creations you ask??

You will need ~

Cherry- Almond Cookie Dough
(yeah, I ate about ten pounds of this stuff, so good.)
  • 1 1/2 cup "cooked" all purpose flour or pasteurized flour (cooked flour "how to" can be found at this link: http://bubblynaturecreations.com/2012/04/not-so-raw-cookie-dough-for-eating.html )
  • 1 stick un-salted butter
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup Marshmallow fluff
  • 1/4 tsp. Imitation Cherry Flavoring
  • 1/2 tsp. Almond Extract
  • red food coloring

  • For the Whipped Cream Cheese ~
  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Blue Food Coloring
  • white star sprinkles, or white chocolate chips. 

  • To make  the cookie dough ~

    Cream together sugar, butter, cherry flavoring,  almond extract, and marshmallow fluff. Add flour in slowly. Mix in red food coloring until desired color. Chill until ready to assemble parfaits.

    To make the Whipped Cream Cheese layer ~

    Beat room temperature cream cheese on high until light and airy. Add in the heavy whipping cream, vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat on high until stiff peaks form. Some cream cheese may still be lumpy- this is ok. Take out 1 cup of the mixture and mix blue food coloring into it. 

    When you are ready to assemble simply layer the cookie dough with the whipped cream cheese in 1/4 inch layers in mini parfait cups or any small dessert dish.  You can use a piping bag to fill the whipped cream cheese in. Top with a dollop, or an ish ton, of the blue whipped cream cheese. Sprinkle with the white sprinkle stars or white chocolate chips!!
