Trifle is a traditional English dessert. It's made in a "trifle dish" which is basically a bowl on a pedestal. The traditional version has layers of ladyfingers soaked in rum, jam, and custard or zabaglone,and whipped cream. It can be made with any combination of cake/cookies, pudding/custard and cream. Fresh fruit, dried fruit -- it's the layering in the clear bowl that makes it "trifle."
Soapapilla Cheesecake is an easy dessert to try for Thanksgiving. I also have a Pecan Pie that has no pecans for people who don't like them or are allergic to them. I also have some sinful cake recipes like Italian Cream Cake. I have hubs on all of these that have the recipes.
