If your Thanksgiving Holidays look anything like mine, then you yourself are stuck in front of a hot oven, drinking a glass of wine (fine a few), carefully basting a turkey while trying to perfectly time the Potatoes, while panicking because you, of course, forgot an ingredient at the market all the while listening to your siblings bicker back and forth….. Oh the Holidays…. still wouldn’t change it for anything. However there comes such a time where we need to cut a corner or two to make this a successful holiday… long and behold the Trifle. Shout out to the English for inventing this cleaver, no fuss dessert. All of the flavor, none of the hassle. Skip the technical cakes and throw this ‘user friendly’ dessert down this Thanksgiving Holiday. All that is required for this particular dessert is a Trifle Bowl, easily found at most big box stores, if your can’t find one… get creative, use individual mason jars for a more personal feel. Let the games begin!
This is one of my favorite dessert recipes. I have taken a recipe from a cookbook from back in the 1970’s and converted it to a new delicious dessert. It is very rich but you just want to keep eating it. The nutty crust is the real stand-out in this recipe along with the creamy coconut pie filling and the toasted coconut on top.
