Berry Custard Trifles in a Jar

Method

1
Make the Custard
2
Put the egg yolks in a medium sized bowl and gently beat them together. Set aside.
3
Add the sugar, cornstarch and milk to a large saucepan and mix until smooth.
4
Cook, stirring continuously, over medium-high heat until mixture begins to thicken and bubble.
5
Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
6
Add a little bit of the milk mixture to the egg yolks and whisk together, then add egg mixture to milk mixture. This process ensures that you don’t cook the egg yolks.
7
Place the pan back on the heat and bring to a light boil. Allow to boil for 2 minutes, stirring continuously.
8
Remove from heat and add the butter and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth, then set aside to cool to room temperature.
9
Make the Whipped Cream
10
Add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to a large mixer bowl and whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.
11
Build the Trifles
12
Put the additional milk into a small bowl. Break a shortbread finger cookie into 4 pieces and dip them into the milk for 2-3 seconds.
13
Place the pieces into the bottom of each of the 4 mini jars.
14
Top the shortbread with a layer of the custard.
15
Add a layer of blueberries and strawberries.
16
Next, pipe a layer of whipped cream.
17
Repeat another layer of shortbread, custard and berries.
18
Finish off the trifles with a swirl of whipped cream, a piece of shortbread and a couple berries. Refrigerate trifles for 3-4 hours before serving, so the cookies have a chance to soften up.
