Summer  Berry Trifle

To begin, warm the raspberry jam in the microwave.


Toss it with the berries and let it sit while you prepare the rest of the trifle.


Beat the heavy cream until stiff peaks form, then set aside.


In a large bowl, combine the softened cream cheese and Confectioners’ sugar.


Beat until smooth and creamy, then beat in the vanilla.


Add a third of the whipped cream, beat until smooth and then add the remaining cream. Then, Fold with a rubber spatula until evenly combined.


To assemble, begin by layering the lady fingers in the bottom of the dish. Top with a third of the berry mixture, followed by a third of the cream. Continue alternating the lady fingers, berries, and cream.


End with the cream cheese mixture on top; for the last layer of cream, leave a 1-inch border around the edge showing the fruit beneath. Sprinkle some berries and a fresh mint on top.


Let the trifle chill for at least 8 hours, then top with some fresh berries and a spring of fresh mint, if desired.
