The Freshman Cook: Waffle Crusted Apple Pie Parfait / #Foodie Extravaganza

September is National Waffle month and along with a bunch of other bloggers we are having a Foodie Extravaganza all about Waffles! You can see all of the delicious recipes at the end of this post. #FoodieExtravaganza

Welcome to the Foodie Extravaganza!

So today, I made Waffle Crusted Apple Pie Parfaits! I love waffles, so this was a fun and tasty challenge for me!! I wanted a little bit of fall in my recipe, even though it is not officially here yet, so I chose apples, which led me to apple pie, which led me to using the waffles as the crust in the apple pie that is not really a pie, but a parfait. Yep, that’s how this brain works. 

Anyway, I hope you like this Waffle Crusted Apple Pie Parfait with Whipped Cream!

Waffle Crusted Apple Pie Parfait


1 3/4 cups Flour

1 tablespoon Baking Powder

2 Egg Yolks

1 3/4 cups Milk

1/2 cup Cooking Oil

2 Egg Whites

Apple Pie Filling

3 cups Granny Smith Apples 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice

1 1/4 cup Water

1/3 cups Sugar

1 tablespoon Cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

Dash of Nutmeg

Whipped Cream

1 cup Whipping Cream

1/2 cup Powdered Sugar

Sprinkle of Cinnamon

Make your waffles by placing the flour and baking powder 

in a bowl. Make a well in the bowl for the wet ingredients.

In a separate bowl mix together the yolks, milk, and oil.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry bowl. Mix together.

The mix should be slightly lumpy.

In a separate bowl, beat your egg whites……

until stiff peaks develop.

Add the whites to the batter. Fold in gently,

leaving a few pieces of white fluff. Cook your waffles on your waffle iron. I used a waffle stick iron. Set them aside after cooking. Peel and cut your apples in to small slices.
Place the apples in a bowl and toss with the lemon juice.
Combine the water, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
Add apples, bring back to a boil, cover and cook until tender, 6-8 minutes. Cool. Build your parfait by cutting your waffle stick into 3 pieces, and place into the bottom of your mason jar. Add a layer of apple filling, another layer of filling, and then one more time. Whip up your whipping cream like we did for these Peaches and Cream Dessert Bars. Add it to the top of your Apple Pie Parfait, sprinkle with

cinnamon, and enjoy!
