Strawberry Cream Trifle

This recipe is an improvisation of a recipe that can be found on http://theslowroasteditalian.com.  That recipe is called Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu, which is a very pretty name for a really delicious dessert! Please check out the website, because it is great!

Below is a picture of a large trifle bowl.

ImageYou can see how big it is in relation to the 8″ round cake stand I have the bowl sitting on. It’s a beautiful bowl, that I picked up last week at the Goodwill Store for $3.00. I’ve wanted to make trifle for a long time, and today is the day:)

You will need the following ingredients:

2 packages of Dessert Shells, used to make strawberry shortcakes. These can usually be found in the produce section of the grocery store along with the strawberries, of which you will need about 2 cups, cleaned and sliced.

ImageYou will also need, one 8 ounce package of cream cheese, 1 cup of heavy cream, 1/4 cup sugar, and 4 egg yolks.

Combine the sugar and egg yolks in a mixer bowl, and with the whip attachment, beat for 5 minutes.

ImageThen add the softened cream cheese, and heavy cream and beat on medium high for about 5 minutes. Be sure the cream cheese is room temp so you don’t have lumps in your mixture.

Take the dessert bowls and cut them into quarters. Dip them lightly in some orange juice, or orange liqueur with the alcohol cooked out of it. (To do this just cook the liqueur at a simmer for about 5 to 7 minutes, then let cool).

ImagePlace the first layer of cake on the bottom of the trifle bowl.

ImageThen put half the cream cheese mixture over the cake, topping that with half the strawberries.

Repeat the layering one more time, topping with strawberries.

ImageYou can top with whipped cream to serve.

There you have it, a great recipe, altered a little bit by Grannie!

Enjoy!
