Autumn trifles

Paul and I are in charge of bringing dessert to today’s Thanksgiving supper, so we had a very sweet kitchen date yesterday. 😉

While he chose to make his signature pumpkin pie, I decided to try something new and make my first ever trifle. I used our small juice glasses because I find scooping portions on individual plates from a big bowl of trifle always seems to be a rather messy business.

Et voilà: a layer of almond sponge cake, covered with some plum compote that I made a few weeks ago and topped with a scrumptious (and very healthy…) cream of mascarpone, whipped cream and yoghurt. Instead of chocolate chips as I first intended, I sprinkled the result with a bit of müsli crunch which I spiced up with cinnamon.

And here is Paul’s pie! All the spices that he used made the kitchen smell so yummy, almost Christmasy! 🙂

Can’t wait for the big feast – maybe I should have skipped breakfast though! 😛

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
