Cinnamon & Cracked Black Pepper Parfait

I know what your thinking cracked pepper in parfait....yuk!
Hear me out!

I have finally finished all my Christmas shopping which is a massive relief. I had good intensions of not buying anything for myself but that didn't quite work to plan!
Most of my purchases were over the internet, where it is so easy to get carried away specially when it is just a click of the finger.

Let me just say how addictive is Etsy! I love this site. I got totally carried away with all the amazing milk glass, cushion covers and blue and white porcelain.....which is for my Mum.....really!

Living in Brisbane you are almost guarantied a steamy hot Christmas day. So there is nothing better than having a cold desert. The cinnamon and cracked pepper in this parfait really compliment each other. It sounds so wrong but tastes so right. 

Cinnamon & Cracked Black Pepper Parfait
3 egg yolks 
3/4 cups of icing sugar
1 1/2 cups of cream lightly whipped{soft peaks}
2 egg whites
6 teaspoons of caster sugar
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 teaspoons of cracked black pepper

Fold egg whites through the mixture of egg yolk and cream and finally add the cinnamon and cracked black pepper
Pour mixture into a a log-shaped mould or deep tray cover and freeze for 6 hours, or overnight
Cut into slices and serve immediately with biscotti and a berry compote. 

Happy Friday!
