Rich butter cookies are layered with lightly sweetened whipped cream and garnished with a berry mixture for a trifle-inspired dessert.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Place 12 cookies into a 2-quart shallow baking dish.
  • Beat the heavy cream, 2 tablespoons sugar and vanilla extract in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  • Spoon the whipped cream in the baking dish.  Top with the remaining cookies.  Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until the cookies are soft.
  • Stir the berries with the remaining sugar in a medium bowl.  Spoon the berry mixture over the cookie mixture. Garnish with the mint, if desired.
  • *Use a combination of sliced strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries.
