It is that time of year again! That’s right. The time of year when everything you have ever loved in any sort of capacity can now come flavored as Pumpkin/Fall/Cinnamon/Yum. I have even got my Fall wreath out. Don't tell me it is too soon! I love it and I don't care.
Love it or hate it. It doesn’t really matter. The season is here and you can either embrace it or ignore it.
So, let us come together and choose to live in the positive right now and embrace it with this super easy, quick and tasty dessert treat. This is probably the easiest thing you’ll ever do but anyone you serve it to will be oh so appropriately impressed.
Fall Fruit Trifle
1 Large Ripe Peach, diced
1 Large Gala Apple, diced
1 Tablespoon Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Cloves
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
½ Pint Heavy Whipping Cream
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Chocolate Chips, optional
Basically, this recipe is so easy that I feel ridiculous even telling you how to do it. I mean, you can figure this out. I know you can. I believe in you. You LITERALLY have the eye of the tiger. You’re ready to fight. I can tell. We can ALL tell.
But if I’m wrong and you’re incredibly dense, toss the fruit with the seasonings and sugar. Let it chill in the fridge for at least 20 minutes. This will let all the flavors soak in together cause yeah. We like that and that makes this perfect for a quick, light dessert after a big dinner.
When you’re ready to assemble the goods, start whipping the heavy cream. I really just pour it into my stand mixer with the whisk attachment and let it do its thang. Super easy. After a few minutes, the cream will start to look like whipped cream. It’s crazy how that happens. At this point, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and keep whipping until it can hold its own.
If you want to be fancy like the Vanderbilt’s, place a layer of whipped cream in a wine or martini glass and then layer with fruit. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Top with chocolate shavings or chips and you’re ready to defeat the world. You are literally a Spartan of the culinary world.
