Strawberry Trifle

I LOVE fresh strawberries!  As a child, there were farms where I would go with my mom and sister to pick them.  I didn’t love the picking, but I did love how the owners let children eat all they wanted.  Trust me, I ate much more than I ever picked!  We would come home with gallons of berries to eat and make into delicious treats.  As an adult living in Kentucky, I found a farm and roadside stand on the way from my house to the county school where I taught.  It became my yearly ritual to stop and buy plenty for eating, jelly making, and freezing for making desserts in the winter time.

This recipe has now become a family favorite! Whether for my family, company or a church potluck, the bowl comes back empty every time!  It is quick, easy to make, and super delicious!

    I make something similar to this using cherry and blueberry pie fillings instead of the strawberries. It is a nice treat for diabetics when you use sugar free pudding and Cool Whip.
