These parfaits are a perfect melding of warming winter spices and bright lemony flavors. They are an easy and pretty addition to your table.



1 3.4-ounce box instant lemon pudding (8 tablespoons dry mix)

2 cups milk

2 cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

¼ cup finely minced crystallized ginger

2 cup finely crushed Trader Joe’s Ginger Thins (or other ginger snap cookies)

8 4-ounce serving cups


Prepare the pudding as directed using the dry mix and milk. Fold in the minced crystallized ginger. Set aside.

Whisk heavy cream to soft peaks. Add powdered sugar and whip for another 15-30 seconds to incorporate the sugar. Set aside.

Place about 2 tablespoons of crushed ginger cookies in each glass. Top with 2 tablespoons of the pudding mixture. Repeat to create two more layers.

Top each parfait with whipped cream. If making ahead of time, place glasses in the fridge until ready to serve.

Before serving, top with more minced crystallized ginger and crushed ginger cookies. Serve with more ginger cookies.
