A surefire way to make food feel fun: Layer it into glasses. Store-bought lemon curd makes this parfait super easy. Stack yogurt, lemon curd, blackberries, and a crumble you'll want to sprinkle on more than just this treat.


  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts

  • ¾ cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 3 graham crackers, crumbled

  • 3 (6-oz.) packages fresh blackberries

  • 3 cups plain whole-milk Greek yogurt

  • 1 ½ cups lemon curd (from 2 10-oz. jars)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir walnuts, oats, oil, sugar, salt, and cinnamon on a rimmed baking sheet, pressing together with your fingers to combine. Bake until golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool for 20 minutes.

  2. Stir crumbled graham crackers into walnut mixture; set aside. (Crumble mixture can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks.)

  3. Place a few blackberries on bottom of each of 6 glasses; layer each with ¼ cup yogurt, ¼ cup lemon curd, 2 tablespoons crumble mixture, ¼ cup yogurt, and 2 tablespoons crumble mixture. Top with remaining blackberries.
