I got these parfait glasses recently and thought this Triple Berry and Vanilla Bean Cream Parfait would be a great recipe to break them in, especially with July 4th coming up. Blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries are reduced down to syrups, chilled, then layered with vanilla bean whipped cream. Evan also got to try blackberries for the first time and loved them. He wasn’t too sure about raspberries.
I added vanilla sugar to the whipped cream for an extra hint of vanilla. If you have some around, I definitely recommend it. If you are using small parfait glasses, adding the whipped cream to a pastry bag to pipe in the layers works a lot better than a spoon.
