Apple Pie Parfait

Printable Recipe

3 large tart apples, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
3/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
12 shortbread or sugar cookies, crushed
2 cups vanilla ice cream
Whipped cream

Combine apples, sugar, water and seasonings in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes. Uncover, stir and cook for about 10 more minutes or until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat.

In a goblet or parfait glass, layer 1 tablespoon of cookie crumbs, about 1/2 cup of ice cream, and a fourth of the apple mixture. Top with remaining cookie crumbs and whipped cream. Serve immediately. Makes 4.

Holly's Note:
I made this one Christmas when it was just the 4 of us and my husband didn't want a whole apple pie sitting around. It was really good! My Dutch Apple Pie is better, mostly because there is just something good about pie crust, but this is very quick and easy. It looks really pretty in parfait glasses, but a bowl works just fine too! The original recipe came from a Quick Cooking magazine.
