If you’re looking for a last-minute dessert for your patriotic party, look no farther than these No-Bake Red, White and Blue Parfaits.
Grab a glass if you’re feeling fancy, or a plastic cup if you’re celebrating poolside or outdoors, and go to town layering cookie crumbs, sweetened whipped cream, and fresh red and blue berries.
That’s your red, white and blue, right there.
Happy birthday to all of US!

Inspiration for this easy, patriotic dessert today came from Andrea Kruse at Adventures in All Things Food . It is Secret Recipe Club  day today, and hers is the blog I was assigned to investigate and cook from this month. Today is our “reveal day,” and I’m happy to have had the chance to cook from Andrea’s blog this past month.
I was spelunking around in her blog for the past weeks, enjoying her recipes and her chat about life on her Oregon farm, and stumbled across her Skillet Baked Pesto Potato  dish. I know my family would enjoy that, as well as her hearty Zucchini Bread Pancakes , which sound like just about the most delicious way to use up the summer zuke glut. And I really cannot take my eyes off her lovely Apple Crostata , which is simply a rustic tart with the crust edges folded over the fruit piled high in the middle. She brilliantly drizzled caramel sauce over hers.
But since it is the Fourth of July, I went with her parfaits, and decided to take them in a red, white and blue direction. She calls hers Cherry and Biscoff Parfaits, because she used cherry pie filling and Biscoff cookies for the crust. I couldn’t find Biscoff, so I went with Lemon Wafer Cookies (like vanilla wafers only lemon wafers) because I think lemon suits berries. Please your own taste buds when you are making this.
Thanks, Andrea, for a delicious month!
