berry trifle dessert
this was a big hit here this evening
1/2 liter of whipping cream
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
1 package frozen mixed berries (a small one is ok)
3-4 tablespoons sugar
1 package meringue cookies
whip the cream until it's almost as you'd like it for whipped cream (but not too stiff), then add most of the can of sweetened condensed milk and whip it some more. i didn't add quite all of it. it whipped into soft, creamy peaks.
mix the berries together with the sugar and let them thaw (tho' they don't have to be totally thawed before you put it together).
crumble 3 small meringue cookies in the bottom of a tall glass (i used our latte glasses from ikea). add a large dollop of the cream mixture, then spoon in the berry mixture, followed by three more crumbled cookies and another dollop of cream. save a few berries for on top or use fresh berries.
would be great with any fruit...fresh strawberries, fresh peaches, blueberries. i used frozen berries b/c it was what we had on hand. they were still a bit frozen when we ate it and that was actually really yummy.
