Apple Pie Parfait is easy to make and fun to eat! 

What’s your favorite holiday dessert? I’m all about the pie! I’ll take pie over cake any day of the week and especially during the holiday season.

At my house, the one dessert we can all agree on is apple pie – Marie Callender’s dutch apple pie to be precise. Since I’m all about the crust, I feel like I’m getting a double dose, with a tender, flaky crust on the bottom and a crispy, crumbly streusel on top.

I also like the fact that Marie Callender’s dutch apple pies are made with 100% Fuji apples, pure cane sugar and a dash of cinnamon.

Because I’m super-duper busy during the holidays (who isn’t?) and holidays are all about family and friends (right?) I’ve found some dessert shortcuts that you’re going to love. Plus, your home will smell heavenly!

Early in the day, while I’m wrapping presents, cleaning the house or spending time with the family, I make my apple chips.

How To Make Apple Chips

Apple-Chips

Thinly slice a Fuji apple, sprinkle with a teaspoon of cinnamon and arrange the apple slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in a 250-degree oven for 2 hours.  

After the first hour, flip the apples so that they crisp evenly. You can bake them an additional hour if they are not crisp enough.

Once the apple slices are done and have permeated my home with the tantalizing smell of apples and cinnamon, I amp that smell up a few notches by baking a Marie Callender’s dutch apple pie according to the directions on the package.

Parfaits Topped With Apple Chips

 

When the dutch apple pie has finished baking, I whip up the cinnamon whipped cream.  It’s so easy!

Cinnamon Whipped Cream For Apple Pie Parfait

You will need:

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

    2. To make the cinnamon whipped cream, pour heavy cream into a chilled mixing bowl (place mixing bowl in the freezer for a few minutes before using)
    3. Beat at high speed.
    4. Slowly add sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla.
    5. Beat until stiff peaks form.
    6. Layer scoops of apple pie and cinnamon whipped cream in parfait glasses. Top with an apple chip.

How to Assemble An Apple Pie Parfait

After the pie has cooled a wee bit (we like it warm!), spoon it into pretty glasses alternately with the cinnamon-dusted whipped cream. Top it off with an apple chip. It’s the perfect holiday dessert!

This is one of the easiest (and tastiest) desserts to make during the holiday season. 

Parfaits-Dutch-Apple-Pie

 

Hold on!  I’m not done.  

My husband always wants vanilla ice cream with his dutch apple pie. He likes for it to melt a little into the warm pie so that each bite is perfectly balanced. So, in addition to the cinnamon whipped cream, I make sure to have vanilla ice cream in the freezer for the hubs.  Men!?!

If you have any leftovers (that’s a big if), you’ve got to try my dutch apple pie milkshake. It’s so easy to make and so delicious!

Be sure and visit Marie Callender’s website to check out all the delicious fruit pies. You’ll also find cream pies including peanut butter and turtle. Double yum! You can also visit their facebook page to see more ways to save time during the busy holiday season.

We’ll sometimes get a Marie Callendar apple pie–they are always so good (and no cleaning up afterwards like baking!)! I love apple, cherry, and pecan pies for the holidays. YUM!

I’m all about shortcuts during the busy holiday and the no cleaning up is a bonus!

Once again, you are jeopardizing my Weight Watchers points! Love this recipe. Seems easy enough to make because I’m not actually making the pie. Think I’ll add it to my list. Thank ya ma’am!

Dionne, this is so easy to make and it’s impressive. Makes you look like you’ve been baking all day. 🙂 As for the weight watchers points, the apples are fruit, right, and fruit is good? 🙂

These look delicious (both the parfait and the milkshake recipe)! My favorite pie is probably pumpkin, but cherry is right up there. Can’t wait until Thursday. I am going to eat all the pie I can and then I will head to the gym all weekend long! : )

I’ll take pie over cake too, and served so beautifully I would take two ;). Love the apple chip at the top.

There are so many great things going on in this post. I’m noticing the apple crisps as a perfect topper but an opportunity for a snack. Next, I’m looking at the great helping of crust against the cream. And like a good southerner, vanilla ice-cream sets everything off perfectly.

This looks amazing, Alli. In the Caribbean my favorite dessert used to be fruit cake now out here in the US….I have no idea! However, I do enjoy all the pies that comes with each season!!!!

Reply
Alli November 24, 2014 - 7:42 pm

Thanks, Zan! I bet the fruit cake in the Caribbean is much better than the fruit cake I’ve eaten. 🙂
