Before we begin we should take a moment and talk about the presentation. You certainly can use your favorite parfait glasses however, using crystal parfait glasses really adds a level of elegance and an extraordinary flair.
Before we begin talking about the ingredients you should know that these parfaits were inspired by our No-Bake Pineapple Cream Cheese Pie. The filling for the parfaits is the exact same filling as what’s in the pie.
After making the pineapple cream cheese filling set it aside. Next, crumble two to three vanilla wafer cookies and place them into the bottom of your parfait glasses.
Place several big tablespoons of pineapple filling on top of the cookies.
Now, add more crumbled cookies on top of the pineapple filling.
Followed by a final few spoonfuls of filling.
The topping consists of a dollop of whipped heavy cream and a dusting of vanilla wafer cookie crumbs.
Garnish each parfait with fresh pineapple wedges and refrigerate until ready to serve. (They keep well up to 2 days in the refrigerator.)
