No-Bake Red, White and Blue Parfaits

Makes 7 (depends on glass size)
– cookies (Plain, I used lemon sugar cookies)
-strawberries (Fresh, or raspberries)
-fresh blueberries (or blackberries)
-whipped cream (layer)
-1 cup whipping cream
-1 1/2 tablespoons powdered sugar
-3 table salt (grains)
-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
-1/4 teaspoons almond extract (optional)

Crush cookies (using a blender or smashing them in a bag)

Make the whipped cream: Add 1 cup whipping cream, sugar, salt and extracts to a cold glass mixing bowl. Whip using an electric beater, and as it begins to thicken, stop the mixer and give it a taste. If it is not sweet enough for you, add a snitch more powdered sugar. I don’t like to over sweeten my whipped cream; remember, the berries and cookie crumbs will be sweet. Continue beating for a few more seconds until you have soft peaks.

Layer your parfaits in glass, so you can see the pretty colors. Start with the cookie layer, and then a layer of berries, then whipped cream, then another color berries, then whipped cream, and then a couple of cookie crumbs or berries for a pretty finish
