Apricot Parfaits

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kim127

This is from the food section of Real Simple Magazine. You can use either the shortbread cookies or replace them with chocolate wafer type cookies and use strawberry or raspberry preserves instead of the apricot. You may want to break the cookies up just a little.

great dessert! I made this using my recipe#147093 that I sliced in a cookie size squares, I think this would work great using different flavors of preserves and I am going to give that a try, thanks for sharing Kim we enjoyed this!
