Trifle A Splendide
3/4 cup brandy
1 tablespoon Williams Sonoma Vanilla Bean Paste
cups whole milk
cups heavy cream
1/4 cup sugar
12 soft lady fingers (store bought)
1/2 cup cherry jam
1 pint blueberries, washed and allowed to dry
1/2 pint raspberries, washed and allowed to dry
2 cups heavy cream, whipped
Seperate the ladyfingers, spread on jam and sandwich the lid on top. Line the bottom of a clear glass container with the lady fingers.
Sprinkle Lady finger with 2 tablespoons of the brandy, toss on a layer of berries and spoon on a layer of custard.
Continue layering until container is full or ingredients are gone.
The most challenging part of this recipe is making the custard, it will take about 20 minutes and requires attention. Once the custard is made, this recipe is very easy.. It is best to make it 24 hours in advanced to let the flavors and textures blend in the refrigerator before serving. This is a great dessert to "bring" to a party.
