Zeppole’s Fourth of July Trifle
3 cups of Pastry Cream (http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/pastry-cream/Detail.aspx)
2 cups chopped Biscotti Dunkers
½ cup Kahlua Liquor (or your favorite coffee flavored liquor)*
1 cup Fresh Strawberries or Raspberries
1 cup Fresh Blueberries
1 cup Whipped Cream
In a 1 ½ quart dish or smaller serving dishes. Spread ¼ of the pastry cream, ¼ of the Zeppole Biscotti crumbs and drizzle coffee liqueur. Top with ½ cup of strawberries of raspberries. Spread ¼ of pastry cream, then ¼ of Zeppole Biscotti crumbs and drizzle with coffee liqueur. Top with ½ of the blueberries. Repeat one more time. End by spreading whipped cream on top. Garnish with some of Zeppole’s Biscotti crumbs or fruit. Cover and refrigerate, for 45 minutes before serving.
*A simple sugar syrup (1 part sugar 1 part water with a teaspoon of almond or amaretto extract) can be substituted for the Kahlua Liquor
I put my Zeppole Trifle in martini glasses. Each martini glass was enough to serve 2-3 people. It made approximately 3 martini glasses full of this delicious dessert.
