Apple Pie Parfait With Cinnamon Whipped Cream

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.

Dutch Apple Pie Parfait

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 and 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. I thinly slice a fuji apple, sprinkle with a teaspoon of cinnamon and arrange the apple slices on a parchment lined baking sheet and 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.

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

Cinnamon Whipped Cream
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  1. Pour heavy cream into chilled mixer bowl (place in freezer for a few minutes before using)
  2. Beat on high speed.
  3. Slowly add sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.
  4. Beat until stiff peaks form.

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

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!

  3. 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? 🙂

  4. OMG, I want to lick my computer screen right now! Both of these recipes sound so yummy! I plan on trying them both! 🙂

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

  11. 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.

  12. This looks AMAZING! I had to pin it to try later! I love this time of year because it gives me an opportunity to try different recipes, especially sweets!

  13. Oh, yummy! All of this looks amazing and so simple! (My favorite kind of amazing!)
