Apple Pie Parfait Recipe | Apple Pie in a Glass

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.

  1. This is a good recipe. When I make, or I should say heat up a store bought pie, I use a very sharp knife and a pie spatula? and it comes out clean.

  2. Thanks for sharing with us at The Southern Special. I love this idea. I too hate a pie that is not "pretty" but sometimes it happens. Great idea and lovely presentation.

  3. Apple pie and Mrs. Smith, cannot go wrong, that and looks easy to make too which is a plus. Will have to give this a try.

  4. This sounds really good. I think though instead of the middle layer of cool whip I would add a layer of vanilla ice cream 🙂 Talk about being even more tasty. I really like this idea though as I totally get the crumbling pie issue. Happens all the time. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

  5. I can never get a proper, pretty slice of pie when I'm serving it to guests! This looks like a great solution. Thanks for sharing! #client
