Strawberries and Cream Trifle. Easy Peasy Chilled Dessert, make a big one or individual bowls. OH YUM!

Who doesn't like Strawberries and cream!
Here we have a very simple recipe made up of Strawberries, Cream, Custard and crushed cookies.
The flavour combination is delightful, and the texture of the crushed cookies gives you that added sensation to lift this dessert to the next level.
This is a great dessert to make in advance, in a large serving bowl or individual bowls, fit for any dinner table or party.

You will need:
4 individual serving bowls or 1 large bowl. (glass ones are nicest so you can see the layers.)

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes - 1 Hour refrigeration
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
5-6 of the crunchiest cookies you have, preferably with a plain flavour
5 - 6 oz or 150 g fresh Strawberries
7 oz or 200 ml Whipping or heavy cream
1 pint or 550 ml of Ready Made Thick Custard OR Jello Vanilla Pudding (not instant)

or to make your own custard from Bird’s Eye, use this ratio:
1 pint or 2 1/2 cups of milk (to make the custard)
2 Tablespoons Bird’s Custard Powder ** See Below
1 Tablespoon of sugar (if the custard / Vanilla Pudding comes without)

Instructions:
1. Place cookies in bag and crush them with a rolling pin until fine crumbs.

2. Make up custard/vanilla pudding mix until it is a thick consistency. Allow to cool. (I place the pan in the sink with cold water to speed up the cooling process.

3. Keep 5 whole strawberries separate, and with the rest, blend them until a puree. This will become the sauce for the middle & top. Have a taste, and if it is not sweet enough for you add 1 Teaspoon of Sugar powder and mix in.

4. Place half the cookie crumbs in the bottom of the bowls
