    Kendra*'s Note:

    I took a cooking class many, many years ago when I got my food processor. This recipe is one of the gems that I got from that class. It was initially called a pie, but didn't have a crust. So I changed the presentation and called it a parfait. Don't let the cottage cheese in the recipe scare you. I absolutely hate cottage cheese, but this is a keeper. The name shown on the recipe is Helen Thorkelson. Cook time is chilling time.
