Trifles are my favorite desserts to make because they are:
made ahead of time and refrigerated
easy to assemble with already made items
filled with cold creamy flavor
entertaining with their endless ingredient combinations
Isn’t it lovely? I always get “Oohs!” and “Ahs!” when I bring one in a trifle bowl to the table. They are very rewarding without a lot of work. This helps out when there’s not a lot of time to spare for a crowd-pleasing dessert.
Many Options For Easy Pie Trifle
The pie trifle dessert is new to me. The first few times I served this dish it was well liked, but no one could figure out what was in it.
I told them it was made with pies from the bakery at the grocery store. How much easier can it be? You start by cutting them into squares and lining the bottom of a trifle bowl. You can use any kind of pie you desire, even a combination of flavors.
Make a mascarpone cream mixture with cinnamon and nutmeg (or you can omit the spice altogether) and cover the pie pieces. Click here for a cinnamon whipped cream filling from my Fig Cake recipe if you’re interested in a lighter version without the mascarpone cheese. Either way is yummy!
Next comes any flavor of sauce that compliments your pies. An example is using caramel and chocolate sauces with pecan pies for the taste of turtle candy. Our family likes the pecan pie with caramel sauce in their trifle best. The nuts add more texture and flavor.
After repeating these layers two more times top with some of the crumbled edges from the pie crust on top and refrigerate.
Do not overbeat the cream filling. It only takes a minute or two for it to get firm.
Add some chocolate and caramel sauce when using pecan pies for the taste of turtle candy.
