Strawberry Parfaits

In Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Margaret McCoy whips up this family-pleaser in no time. "It forms two layers—a creamier bottom and foamier top—that make it took fancy" she reports. "But it takes just minutes to blend together."

    This is a very good recipe...My mother (RIP) made this for me all the time, then I made it for my kids and children and they loved it...I crushed up some graham crackers and put some at the bottom of the dish, and then the rest on top of the parfait.
