Strawberry and Cream Parfaits by Laura Vitale

Ingredients                                       Qty

Chopped Strawberries             4 cups

Balsamic Vinegar                      1 tbsp

Granulated Sugar                      ¼ cup

Crushed Graham Crackers       ½ cup               

Load of Pound cake                   1 9 inch

Softened Cream Cheese            8 0z

Powdered Sugar                         ½ Cup

Whipped Topping                      8 oz

Vanilla Extract                             1 tsp

Zest of half a lemon                                             

Instructions:

1) In a bowl, toss the berries with the balsamic and sugar and set aside. 

2) In a large bowl, cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, lemon zest and vanilla until well combined, then fold in the whipped topping (it will turn into a thick mousse like consistency), place the cream in a large piping bag, snip the tip and set aside.

3) Cut the pound cake into slices and add a piece to the bottom of a serving cup (this makes 12 so use small single size cups) then top with a spoonful of strawberries, pipe over some of the cream, add a sprinkle of the graham cracker crumbs and finish with another spoonful of strawberries. 

4) Pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
