Prep time
Total time
 
These Easy Raspberry Cheesecake Double-Date Parfaits are made with store-bought pound cake for ease, but feel free to use any leftover cake you have available. I combined two servings in each tall glass with two spoons (you know, to be romantic and all that), but feel free to separate your parfaits out into 8 small parfait glasses. These can be prepared up to one hour in advance and chilled until serving.

Serves: 8
Ingredients
Sparkling Raspberry Ingredients:
  • 4 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup dry sparkling wine
Whipped Cream Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cheesecake Filling Ingredients:
  • 1 brick (8-ounces) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 prepared pound cake, cut into 1-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
Instructions
  1. Make the sparkling raspberries: Combine the raspberries, sparkling wine, and sugar in a medium bowl. Cover this and set it aside to macerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Make the whipped cream: Whip heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract together to stiff peaks. Transfer whipped cream to a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.
  3. Make the cheesecake filling: Beat together the Philadelphia Cream Cheese, powdered sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla extract until smooth. Transfer to a pastry bag with the tip cut off.
  4. Assemble: In either 4 tall (for couples) or 8 regular (for individuals) parfait glasses, layer pound cake cubes, sparkling raspberries with sparkling wine, and a thick layer of cheesecake filling. Repeat another layer of cake cubes and raspberries before topping the parfaits with whipped cream. Serve.

    I love my husband, but I don’t share dessert. He would seriously be in dire physical harm if he tried! LOL

    You could also eat these on a bicycle built for two, as you sing “Raaaaaaspberry Parfaits”. That might really draw some attention. I love this delicious combination, Julie!

    I had to laugh at the introvert story. You are not alone. My husband and I enjoy entertaining, but much prefer to do it with another couple. Small and simple. Big parties make me a bit nervous (including big blogger conventions). I ONLY buy Philadelphia Cream cheese, and always keep at least two in my refrigerator. This is simple, and beautiful. Lovely post.

      I also ONLY buy Philadelphia cream cheese – someone in our family once bought the “fake” kind for our family dip and it was AWFUL! Philadelphia is the only one I trust! p.s. – this recipe looks amazing – can’t wait to try it 🙂
