Christmas Recipes – Santa’s Christmas Trifle Recipe December 19, 2006

Christmas Recipes – Santa’s Christmas Trifle Recipe

We aren’t sure just why this is named Santa’s Christmas Trifle, but it
may be because making this is like a gift. Keep these ingredients on hand and
you can whip up a great trifle in a very few minutes. Looks impressive, too!

1 frozen pound cake
1/4 cup orange juice
1 (20-ounce) can apple pie filling
4 tablespoons raspberry jelly (or seedless preserves)
2 cups prepared vanilla pudding
1 (8-ounce) container Cool Whip
Toasted coconut for garnish

The bowl you choose for the trifle is very important because the effect is
gained by seeing the layers of the trifle through glass. You could make an
individual trifle serving by using a clear parfait or sherbet glass, but it
is a lot more trouble. Arrange in layers. Cut 1/2 of cake into cubes.
Sprinkle on orange juice, then 1/2 of pie filling, dot with all the jelly,
and top with 1/2 the pudding. Repeat all these layers except jelly, which
has all been used. Top with Cool Whip and gar­nish with toasted coconut.
