    How healthy is a dessert? Well, it's okay if you don't eat too much of it! This recipe calls for dry sherry or other dry white wine or white grape juice. I left out the alcohol and just wrote down the grape juice. I hope you enjoy it.

    English Trifle

    Prep: 30 min; Cook: 20 min; Chill: 3 hr

    Prepare this trifle in a pretty glass serving bowl to show off the beautiful layers of cake, fruit and cream.

    -1/2 cups sugar

    -3 tablespoons cornstarch

    -1/4 teaspoon salt

    -3 cups milk

    -1/2 cup white grape juice

    -3 large egg yolks, beaten

    -3 tablespoons butter

    -1 tablesppon vanilla extract

    -2 (3-ounce) packages lady fingers (24)

    -1/2 cup strawberry preserves

    -1 pint (2 cups) strawberries, sliced or 1 package (10 ounces) frozen, sliced strawberries, thawed and drained

    -1 cup whipping (heavy) cream

    -2 tablespoons sugar

    -2 tablespoons slivered almonds, toasted


    1. Mix 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch and salt in 3-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in milk and grape juice. Heat to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute.

    2. Gradually stir at least half of the hot mixture into egg yolks, then stir back into hot mixture in saucepan. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in butter and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate about 3 hours or until chilled.

    3. Split ladyfingers horizontally in half. Spread cut sides with preserves. Layer one-fourth of the ladyfingers, cut sides up, half of the strawberries and half of the pudding in 2-quart serving bowl; repeat layers. Arrange remaining ladyfingers around edge of bowl in upright position with cut sides toward center. (It may be necessary to gently ease lady-fingers down into pudding about 1 inch so they remain upright.) Cover and refrigerate.

    4. Beat whipping cream and 2 tablespoons sugar in chilled medium bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Spread over dessert. Sprinkle with almonds. Refrigerate until serving. Store covered in refrigerator.
