Strawberries and Cream Trifles

Strawberries and Cream Trifles - layers of strawberries with syrup, strawberry mousse, vanilla cookies and whipped cream. This is not only beautiful, but tastes amazing!
It's no secret that I love strawberries and all the syrupy goodness that it comes with when sugar is involved. So I incorporated it into these strawberries and cream trifles. I could sit down and spoon the strawberries and syrup by itself until it is completely gone. It's true and I've probably done it a couple of times in my life. I, however, toughed it out this time and made trifles instead. Trifles that happen to be perfect for Valentine's Day!

I can't wait to give these trifles another shot when I get some fresh strawberries from the strawberry farm near me this spring. The smell alone from freshly picked strawberries makes me go crazy. I start drooling and before you know it, I've ate several dozen strawberries without the sugar added though. Can you tell I'm itching for winter to be done with?

Ingredients
  

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries hulled and halved
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 8 ounces . cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 30 vanilla wafer cookies crushed

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, add in the strawberries and sugar. Place over medium heat and let cook for 23 - 25 minutes until the strawberries are broke down. Stir occasionally. I mash my strawberries as they cook with the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Set the mixture in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge until completely cooled.

Whipped Cream

  • In a cold mixing bowl, add in the heavy cream. Beat until soft peaks form.
  • Add in the powdered sugar. Continue to beat until it becomes thick.

Mousse

  • In a mixing bowl, add in the cream cheese. Mix with a hand mixer until creamy.
  • Add in one cup of the cooled strawberry syrup mixture in with the cream cheese. Mix until incorporated.
  • Add half of the whipped cream into the mixture. Using a hand mixture, incorporate the whipped cream into the cream cheese.
  • Place the mousse into a piping bag with a straight tip or coupler.
  • Add the remaining whipped cream in a piping bag with a 1M tip.

Assemble

  • In your trifle dishes, add in some cooled strawberries and syrup.
  • Pipe a layer of mousse.
  • Sprinkle a nice layer of vanilla wafer cookies.
  • Pipe a layer of whipped cream.
  • Repeat all of the layers except the cookies. You can add more or less of any of the things too.

Notes

To store any leftover trifles, place in a mason jar with lid or air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
