Parfait Recipes Too Pretty to Scoop.

Mouth-watering rhubarb-fool dishes enhanced by fruits, cheese, and Grande-Marnier are delicious.

Like a mousse, these recipes are made with the puree of any favorite fruit. The word "fool" actually translates from the French vocabulary meaning "to mash."

Also, these types of desserts are specifically chilled and presented in tall clear glass dishes or actual glasses.

The purpose is to display the visual appeal of the recipe showing a layering effect and deep colors that may be used depending upon the fruit.

These dishes are sure to impress.


2 cups rhubarb

1/3 cup of brown sugar softened

1 large banana for slicing

1 large banana for mashing

1 tsp. ginger

1 tblsp. white sugar

2 egg whites

8 oz. of softened cheese

On low heat, reduce the rhubarb to a puree. Let cool.

Add the ginger, sugar and 1 mashed banana to puree. Mix well.

Beat in the softened cheese, and gradually fold in the egg whites.

Add to individual serving dishes and refrigerate until served.

Top with banana slices.


2 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb

2/3 cup brown sugar

Juice of 1 orange

1/4 tsp. cloves

1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup of cream

1 tblsp. white sugar

Grande Marnier to your taste

Cook the rhubarb, brown sugar, cloves and orange juice on low heat until reduced to a puree. Remove and add the vanilla.

Pour into a large bowl and chill.

While puree is chilling, whip the cream, white sugar and liqueur. Fold into the chilled puree.

Spoon mixture into individual dessert glasses (5 or 6) and refrigerate again until you are ready to serve.


3 cups chopped rhubarb

1 1/4 cups frozen raspberries

1/3 cup white sugar
