{trifle in a jar...berries with lemon cream}

Fresh berries are one of my absolute favorite things, and the epitome of summer. I think I adore blackberries the most, but I waver whenever I taste raspberries!   I love to serve berries after dinner, and mason jars is a really fun way to present them. 

When I'm feeling extra fancy, I make them into a trifle, using a quick and simple lemon cream.  It takes just minutes to make, but adds an incredible creaminess and a sweet complement to the tartness of the berries.  If you're looking for a yummy dessert to serve to family, friends, or other company, this is definitely one to try!


This time I used raspberries and blueberries for the 4th of July, but any berry will work.  You could also add cubed poundcake for another layer of flavor, but the berries and cream can stand on their own, too. Add a layer of berries on the bottom, cream next, another layer of berries, and a last layer of cream. Top with more berries! It's best when served immediately.  

Lemon Cream

1 pint heavy cream
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 T. lemon extract (or to taste..I like it strong)

Whip the cream until it's starting to form soft peaks.  Add the powdered sugar, and then the lemon extract once the sugar is incorporated.
