This is the perfect recipe for the holidays — the ginger provides warmth to the glazed fruit and it is a quick and simple dessert that can be made right after the big dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup apricot preserves
  • 2 Teaspoons McCormick ginger, ground
  • 1 1/2 Cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1 Cup pineapple, coarsely chopped fresh
  • 2 1/2 Cups angel food cake cubes
  • 4 Tablespoons whipped topping, thawed frozen reduced fat
  • Sliced almonds, for garnish

Directions

Mix preserves and ginger in medium bowl until well blended. Add strawberries and pineapple; toss gently to coat well.

Spoon 1/3 of the fruit mixture into 4 parfait or wine glasses. Top with 1/2 of the cake cubes. Repeat layering with fruit mixture and cake cubes, ending with fruit mixture.

Serve immediately or refrigerate up to 2 hours before serving. Garnish with whipped topping. Sprinkle with toasted sliced almonds, if desired.
