CRANBERRYAMARETTI PARFAITS SERVES 8 | ACTIVE: 15 MIN TOTAL: 15 MIN
This is a spin on Eton mess, a classic (and easy!) British dessert made by layering fruit, crushed meringues, and whipped cream. In our Thanksgivingified version, we use ginger-cranberry sauce and crunchy almond cookies. 3 cans (about 14 oz. each) whole- berry cranberry sauce 11/2 tsp. grated peeled
fresh ginger 2 cups heavy cream 1/4 cup black raspberry liqueur (such as Chambord or Bols) 11/2 tsp. almond extract 16 large or 48 mini amaretti
cookies, coarsely crushed In a medium bowl, stir the cranberry sauce and ginger. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the cream, raspberry liqueur, and almond extract until semifirm peaks form, about 2 minutes. Divide half the cranberry-ginger sauce, whipped cream, and cookies among 8 bowls. Repeat the layers with the remaining sauce, cream, and cookies. Serve immediately.
MAKE IT AHEAD
The cranberryginger sauce and whipped cream can be made up to 8 hours ahead. Cover them separately and refrigerate. You might need to take a whisk to the whipped cream to freshen it up before using. Build the parfaits just before serving.
