Raspberry Cream Trifle

Here's a dessert that's delicious, simple and inviting. You can vary the flavor by substituting strawberries or peaches (with preserves to match) for the raspberries. —Donna Huitema, Whitby, Ontario

    Best trifle recipe.

    This trifle has made me a star at all summertime gatherings! I've heard through the grapevine that women have been upset that their husbands send them after me to get the recipe! Hands down the freshest, most delicious dessert dish! I usually cheat and use a tub of Cool-Whip. I have also used blueberries from the garden. Delicious any which way!

    Do you sweeten the whipped cream while whipping?
