Wild Blueberry Maple Parfait

What is more Canadian than wild blueberries and maple syrup. Perhaps we should have saved Wild Blueberry Maple Parfait for Canada Day instead.


  • 3 ½ cups blueberries divided
  • ¾ cup pure maple syrup divided
  • 1 cup chilled heavy cream
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 6 Oz thin ginger cookies coarsely crumbled


  • Cook 2 ¼ cups of blueberries with ½ cup of maple syrup in a 2 quart heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until blueberries have burst. Cool in an ice bath, stirring occasionally.
  • While blueberry mixture cools, beat cream with remaining maple syrup using a mixer until it holds stiff peaks.
  • Stir lemon juice and remaining 1 ¼ cups blueberries into cooled blueberry-maple mixture.
  • Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the blueberry mixture into each of 6 glasses and top with half crumble cookies and half whipped cream. Repeat layering until glasses are filled and serve immediately.
