Ice Cream Parfait with Cherry Compote & Oatmeal Crumble

I love layered desserts. There is something great about sinking your teeth into a new layer with each bite.  I had been wanting to incorporate cherries into a dessert all summer, so I decided to make cherry compote, layer it between vanilla ice cream and top it off with oatmeal crumble.  This tasted like a cherry pie, but without the crust, it was delicious.  
A Few Things: The cherry compote also pairs perfectly with Greek yogurt.  Another idea is to top the yogurt with some granola for a healthy breakfast.

  1. It looks good! If you put ice cream with it, I will eat anything. I am a sucker for ice cream. I told my husband just last night that I needed to take a break from it because I eat it WAY too much!
