I don’t know if the English version of the Saveurs magazine has the same recipes as the French version, but the June French issue has some delicious recipes. I’ve never had trifle before and maybe this is not authentic but it is how I like my desserts; fresh, un-cakey and easy. This one’s for you Frugal :)
Mini Strawberry Trifles
2 cups strawberries, stemmed and diced
2/3 cup mascarpone
1/3 cup cream
3 tbsp sugar
1 vanilla bean, seeds removed and hull discarded
18 small shortbread cookies
Mix the mascarpone, cream, sugar and vanilla seeds together. Set aside.
Crumble 3 cookies each, in the bottom of 6 dessert glasses. Top with a little of the mascarpone cream, then divide the strawberries among the glasses. Top with the rest of the mascarpone cream and refrigerate or serve.
