    STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE TRIFLE

    This is the dessert I made for a church dinner last Sunday. I wish I could post a photo of it--- almost as beautiful as it was delicious.


    STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE TRIFLE

    2 lb fresh strawberries, cut into quarters
    (approximately 4 cups)
    cup granulated sugar
    cup strawberry preserves
    4 ounces cream cheese, softened
    can (7 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
    8 ounces whipped cream
    1 angel food cake, cut into bite sized cubes
    Instructions
    In a medium bowl, mix together the
    strawberries, sugar, and preserves.
    Place in the refrigerator to chill while you
    prepare the remaining ingredients.
    In a separate medium mixing bowl,
    combine cream cheese and sweetened
    condensed milk with a hand mixer.
    Fold in whipped topping.
    To assemble: In a large trifle bowl, add
    ⅓ of the angel food cake, ⅓ of the strawberry
    mixture, and ⅓ of the cream cheese mixture.
    Repeat the layers two more times.
    Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Sounds really delicious! About how many people would it serve? Was the top layer the cream cheese mixture?

    I've never had a trifle and didn't know just what a trifle bowl was but I think this is it--?

      Yes, agate, that is a trifle bowl. This was the first trifle recipe I've ever made, and I don't own such a bowl. I looked all over the internet and they are horribly expensive (for me) and hard to store ... where could I keep such a bowl? So, I used a plain, slightly larger, bowl I have and it worked and looked just fine.
      The trifle was an enormous hit and the bowl was scraped clean in no time. It was so popular that I'm making it again this week!

        This sounds like a delicious and visually appealing dessert! The combination of fresh strawberries, angel food cake, and cream cheese mixture creates a perfect balance of flavors and textures. Adding an apple pie filling to the trifle could add a nice contrast of flavors, you could mix it with the strawberries in the first layer or put it in the middle layer, or even as a topping. It could add a nice sweetness and a different texture to the trifle. Overall, it sounds like a great dessert to bring to a church dinner or any other special occasion.
