These parfaits are refreshing and decadent - truly the perfect treat for warm weather.
I am finally obsessed with lemon in everything, so all my years of not being a fan means I have very few recipes saved up and I'm still not completely sold on full-on lemon desserts like lemon cookies or bars. I am sure I will work my way up to them, but I am loving experimenting in the meantime. This sweet dessert had the perfect amount of lemon in it. These little babies were so addictive. I made them way back in 2015 for the Fourth of July (with the addition of blueberries) since they were very festive and the citrus was perfect for summer.
What I really loved was the element of crunch that the almonds added. The nuttiness was just so perfect with the grahams and lemon cheesecake filling and berries. Heaven in a mason jar, folks.
I also found out the hard way that late summertime afternoons do not shed very much natural light at my mom-in-law's, so I used her breezeway as my backdrop LOL. Except the one picture from my kitchen island.
