Peach Parfait

Last weekend I hosted a small brunch on a whim and invented this adorable dessert with what I had in the fridge. Flat peach parfaits it would be. Make sure you try the flat or “plat” as they say here peaches this summer. Definitely a new favorite for me.

Peach Parfaits

Serves 2

  • 1/2 package of shortbread style cookies, crushed
  • 3 T. butter, melted
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 small flat peaches, diced
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1-2 tsp. Amaretto
  • 1 tsp. chopped basil (if feeling bright and wild)
  • whipped cream
  1. In a small bowl combine crushed cookies, butter, cinnamon and salt. Stir together until pea-sized balls form.
  2. In another small bowl, toss peaches with cinnamon, sugar, basil, and Amaretto. Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes.
  3. In small champagne coupes, wine glasses, or other pretty small bowls, place a layer of cookie crumble, then a layer of whipped cream, then peaches. Repeat.
  4. Garnish with a few other cookie crumbs, sprinkle of cinnamon, and a mint leaf.
