Amaretto Pear Parfaits

Bosc pears work well in this dessert. I also love the flavor combination of amaretto and peaches, so peaches would probably also work well in this recipe. Based on a recipe I found in Cooking Light a couple years ago. The original used softened low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt, but I've only made it with the yogurt. The 1 hour cooking time is actually chilling time. With the low-fat frozen yogurt, Cooking Light showed the nutritional values per serving as: 238 calories, 5.6 grams fat, 39.9 g carbs, 137 mg sodium.
