Lime jelly custard trifles
lime jelly tablet (or flavour of your choice)
½ pint boiling water
½ pint cold water
1 tin of sliced peaches, drained (or fruit of your choice) 250ml ready-made custard
100g shortbread biscuits, broken up
1 Add the jelly tablet to the boiling water. Stir the mixture to help the jelly tablet to dissolve in the water. Then make up to one pint with cold water. 2 Pour into a glass bowl and leave in the refrigerator to set.
3 Layer the set jelly, tinned fruit and custard into individual glasses and top with shortbread biscuits. Serve chilled.
Puff pastry, shortbread biscuits, tinned fruit, jelly tablets, ready-made custard, and condensed milk are all good standby ingredients for making a quick dessert.
