Parfait is a French word meaning "perfect." A phrase used by many to describe this dish. American parfaits consist of ice cream served with whipped cream, fruit, or other sauces piled in layers in a tall, narrow glass called a "parfait glass." It is often topped with sweet whipped cream and garnished with a maraschino cherry.

~-Strawberry ice cream and strawberry jam ~-Vanilla ice cream and red raspberry jam ~-Cherry ice cream and almond-flavored whipped cream ~-Vanilla ice cream with apricot and apple, or pear and pineapple baby or junior fruit ~-Chocolate ice cream and marshmallow cream.

Any combination of ice cream and sauce that strikes your fancy can be tried, and can't help but be delicious! Recipe By :
