I love a good apple pie
especially for the holidays, but it can get tricky trying to serve it. No matter what I do, my slices fall apart.
Whether I cut it cold or hot, I get the same result. Crumbling apple pie doesn’t make pretty pre-portioned dessert at family gatherings so this year I’m doing something different. Instead of apple pie slices, I’m serving apple pie parfaits.
I used Mrs. Smith’s apple pie, the best store bought apple pie on the market, to make my parfaits. To create layers, I used Cool Whip French Vanilla flavor, and uncooked whole rolled oats.
To make this dessert I started with cold apple pie. I baked the pie the night before and let it cool in the fridge overnight. Deconstructing the pie while it’s cold makes it easier to get the apple filling separated from the crust.
I separated the filling from the crust and placed them in mini bowls. To make the first layer of the apple pie parfait I coarsely chopped the crust and mixed in some oats.
I pressed a layer of the oat and the pie crust mixture in the bottom of my dish.
Next, I scooped in a layer of French Vanilla Cool Whip, sprinkled in a layer of raw oats and topped with the apple pie filling.
I added a dollop of Cool Whip to finish it off.
This is the most amazing way to serve apple pie when having guests. There’s no droopy pie slices and no one getting a bigger slice than anyone else.
