Oreo Trifle

        Here is my first trifle. I see them all the time on the Food Network, namely Paula Deen's shows. I’m sure many more people are responsible for the popularity of this dessert item. My apologies for my lack of research.  

            So why so long for me to try one of this super cool  treats? HHHhhmmm….good question. I chalk it up to a few things. For one, I didn’t, until now, own a trifle dish. Which actually, I still don’t know if I own as I bought what was advertised as a centerpiece! Eh, kudos for being resourceful, right? And the second reason why I haven’t made one of these is because, well, I couldn’t find the time to make all the layers. And three, I honestly am more a sucker for cookies, scones and pies. So here’s to trying new things.

            Let’s revisit that second reason why I haven’t made a trifle yet: no time to make layers. No I didn’t find some magical way to make more time for myself, I just took some shortcuts. The result was first, one big assembly line which had Hubby sweeping for hours and second, many second helpings of this dessert explosion, aka trifle. Enjoy…
