We know it’s unlikely but sometimes you can end up with leftover fruit Mince Tarts. If you do find yourself in this position, here’s a very simple, and very quick recipe for a yummy dessert.
All you need is:
- A glass bowl for each person, or a cleaned jam jar if you have one spare
- One Mince Tart per trifle
- One punnet of strawberries
- 500ml Custard
- 300g of fresh or whipped cream
To put your trifle together:
The secret to a good trifle is in the layers, so if you want to add more layers, simply halve your portion sizes.
First things first, set up your bowls or jam jars in a row and pour in about 3cm of custard as a first layer of creamy custardy goodness
Cut your strawberries into quarters and place a layer of strawberries on top of the custard
Whip your fresh cream or use whipped cream in a can for the 4th layer. You’ll want around 2 cm of cream for this layer to really moisten the mince tarts! Top this with a sprinkle of strawberries.
Finally, pour in some custard on top and really make sure it goes down through every layer.
For a finishing touch, take your shortbread star and place it on top of the trifle, with a whole strawberry to add some colour to the top!
