triple, not so triple

Considering the original meaning of the word as an adjective, trifle should be some trivial desserts; not so. While it is one of the easiest desserts to make, it can also be one of the best. What you need to do is to prepare ingredients and assemble them, and put in the refrigerator overnight to meld all the flavors together. As it must be made beforehand whatever the occasion is, I think it is one of the best desserts anyone can make.

The one in the picture is made of strawberries, whipped cream and pine nut meringue cookie from Berkeley, CA. One friend of mine sent them to me and I immediately liked the taste of pine nut, which is very subtle and not overwhelming like other nuts. I happened to like putting things I got from others as gifts to fuse into other stuff, i.e., making ice cream out of the tea. So the idea of crumble the cookie into the trifle, and it was successful.

After assembling everything and let them rest overnight, I put strawberry and basil leaf as garnishes. It is not surprising that strawberry and basil get along really well.

  1. Looks fantastic! Pine nuts are great…and I always wondered the same thing about the origin of such an ironically lustrous dessert. Know anywhere else (in Korea) one could obtain those cookies? And what’s the jam in the trifle?

    • I am not sure where I can get those cookies;; I would just bake myself even if it is not so perfect. And the jam is probably made out of mulberry. There is a baker whom I think is the best and he bought the mulberry from producer and make the jam himself.
