Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
In a small bowl, combine the
Fresh Strawberries (1 cup)
Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp)
. Toss to combine and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the
Mascarpone Cheese (1 cup)
Greek Yogurt (1/2 cup)
Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1/2 cup)
Almond Extract (1 tsp)
Use a hand mixer on medium high speed to combine and whip the ingredients together. Continue to whip until light and fluffy. Set aside.
Place 10 of the
Chocolate Wafer Cookies (12)
in a zip top sandwich baggie and seal it. Reserve the other two cookies for garnish.
Use a rolling pin or the flat side of a meat tenderizer to crush the cookies into fine crumbs. Set aside.
Sliced Almonds (1/4 cup)
out on a cookie sheet. Cook until lightly toasted and golden, about 5 to 8 minutes. Set aside.
In a clear parfait glass or wine glass with a wide mouth, sprinkle a tablespoon of the crushed chocolate wafer cookies.
Top with 3 tablespoons of the hulled and diced strawberries.
Pipe about 1-inch of mascarpone cream on top of the berries.
Repeat with cookies, berries and cream. Garnish with a sprinkle of toasted almonds,

Cover and refrigerate. Remove parfaits from the refrigerator 30 minutes to an hour before serving so the cream softens a bit.
