Author Miranda Couse


  • 4 cups fresh strawberries hulled and halved
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 8 oz . cream cheese room temperature
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 30 vanilla wafer cookies crushed


  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
