This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Lindsey from Growing Kids Ministry for winning!
I used to stand by the glass counter, staring longingly into the dessert case, hoping my parents would budge and buy me one of the little “parfait buckets”. Banana Cream pie, strawberry shortcake, triple chocolate brownie… all made even more appealing by their presentation in a clear, little container.
My Grandpa was my only ticket to ever getting these desserts… I knew every time we’d head to lunch together, a single serving dessert of my choice would be in my future. Sitting in the local KFC, eating little parfait buckets together, is still one of my favorite memories of time spent with my Grandpa.
My good friend Shaina reacquainted me with these memories of my Grandpa the second she started working on her Desserts in Jars cookbook. The appeal of pies, puddings, cakes and more in little single serving dessert jars was one I could totally relate to. There’s just something about eating your dessert in your very own special jar that makes it all the more decadent.
Shaina has sweetly offered to give one lucky Dine & Dish reader a copy of her cookbook Desserts in Jars, 50 Sweet Treats That Shine (Harvard Common Press). You’ll fall in love with Shaina’s writing, recipes and photography the second you flip open the very first page.
