Strawberries and Cream Trifles
4 cups Harvest Haven strawberries, thawed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
8 oz . cream cheese room temperature
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
30 vanilla cookies, crushed
In a saucepan, add in the strawberries and sugar. Place over medium heat and let cook for 10-15 minutes until the strawberries are broken 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. Place in the fridge until completely cooled.
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 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.
