Cherry Crisp Parfait

June 22, 2014 | No Comments

This is week 25 of Reddit’s 52 Weeks of Cooking Challenge, and the theme this week is stone fruits. I started out making a cherry crisp this morning and needed breakfast for my girls, so I made the crisp into a parfait. The girls loved it so much we had it again for second breakfast and lunch.

These are cherries from trees in our yard. Dominic has an awesome system for picking them. He gets on a ladder, takes a garden rake and rakes them out of the high branches. Our girls scramble to gather the juicy cherries from the drop cloth and put them in a bowl, before our darling ever-hungry dog Butter eats them all. Fun times had by all.

Feel free to make this cherry crisp parfait with fresh cherries during cherry season or with frozen the rest of the year. Other stone fruits and berries will work beautifully as well. Be sure to share and enjoy this cherry crisp parfait with your family and friends.
