A beautiful and delicious dessert. Very easy too.

I made these for dessert during Christmas. Very beautiful. I didn't use parfait glasses but just stemmed clear tea glasses that I already had and it worked perfectly. The whipped cream layer was light and certainly creamy. We love cherry pie filling so we were thrilled with that. I can see me making this and using other pie fillings as well. Thanks for an easy, stunning dessert.
