This is a great make-ahead dessert, especially for entertaining. To make cookie crumbs, place cookies in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin, or pulse them in a food processor.
8 servings (serving size: 1 parfait)


+ Add To Shopping List
1 1/2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups frozen reduced-calorie whipped topping, thawed and divided
16 cakelike ladyfingers
1/2 cup amaretti cookie crumbs (about 8 cookies)


Combine the first 5 ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, and cook until thick and bubbly (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat; stir in the butter and vanilla. Pour into a bowl; cover surface of pudding with plastic wrap, and chill. Remove plastic wrap, and fold in 1 cup whipped topping.

Split ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Line each of 8 parfait glasses with 4 ladyfinger halves, standing the halves upright. Spoon 2 tablespoons pudding into the center of each glass, and top each portion with 2 teaspoons cookie crumbs. Spoon 1/4 cup pudding on top of crumbs. Top each parfait with 1 tablespoon whipped topping, and sprinkle each serving with 1 teaspoon crumbs.
