I'm also back for the Surprise Recipe Swap challenge.
I was assigned to Marlys' blog, This and That. I have also had the pleasure of being paired with her for Foodie Penpal before... she sent me some really awesome African spices along with some other fun foodie stuff! So cool!
This time around I had the pleasure of browsing through her recipe archive for the perfect recipe to make. Turns out, I had some key limes in the fridge, and some condensed milk and graham crackers in the pantry, so I was all over this parfait.
Key Lime Parfaits
adapted from This and That
- 1 and 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 14 cup melted butter
- 1 (14-oz) can condensed milk
- 1/2 cup fresh key lime juice
- 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For Filling: In medium bowl, combine condensed milk and lime juice. Whisk until well combined. Set aside.
For topping: In a large bowl, beat heavy whipping cream to soft peaks. This can also be done in an electric mixer bowl. Add in powdered sugar and vanilla and combine well.
Assembly: Alternate crust and filling in parfait glasses. Add topping and sprinkle with a bit of the crust.
*Note: The amount of parfaits yielded will depend on the size of glasses and amount of crust-to-filling ratio you want to use.
Just look at that.... layers upon layers of undeniable goodness.
I love a good key lime pie, and this is the simpler version in parfait form! I also love any chance to make buttery graham cracker crumbs. This parfait did NOT disappoint.
