Raspberry Lime Parfaits
I have a thing for breakfast parfaits. They’re just so darn pretty with all the layers, and they’re perfect for people who don’t want a super heavy meal in the morning.
That being said, I sorta think these raspberry lime parfaits are a bit more dessert-like with the creamy cheese layers so they would be perfect for brunch!

Raspberry Lime Parfaits
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
- 2 pints raspberries
- 1/2 cup raspberry liqueur
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 8-ounce tub mascarpone cheese softened
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- zest of 2 limes
Melt butter in small saucepan over low heat. Add 3 tbsp sugar and graham cracker crumbs. Cook until crumbs turn golden brown. Set aside to cool.
In medium mixing bowl, gently combine raspberries, liqueur, emulsion and 1/4 cup sugar. Set aside.
In a separate mixing bowl, whisk softened mascarpone cheese, lime juice, cream and 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form.
Place a dollop of the cheese mixture in a dessert cup. Sprinkle with a little of the crumb mixture and a scoop of the raspberry sauce mixture. Repeat the three layers. Top with a dollop of the cheese mixture and some lime zest.
Can substitute cream cheese for mascarpone cheese, if desired.
