Maryland Themed Preakness Dessert
Posted on May 13, 2013

Preakness week is here and we’re busy planning a festive Maryland themed affair! Not only are we celebrating having the second jewel of the Triple Crown in our home state but we’re cheering on Orb, the winner of the Kentucky Derby, whose owners are from Baltimore County! In honor of all this Maryland Pride we created a delicious dessert using Baltimore’s very own BERGER COOKIES! It’s a treat that’s sure to make any Baltimorean proud!

Lemon Raspberry Berger Cookie Trifle
Recipe By: Molly Neifeld
1-2 Packages of Berger Cookies, chopped
Lemon Pudding
Raspberry Sauce
Homemade Whipped Cream

Chop the Berger cookies into equal size pieces that match the size of your container. We used small dessert glasses so the pieces were pretty small. Set aside until you’re ready to use.

Prepare the Lemon pudding according to the package. Set aside until you’re ready to use.

Make the whipped cream with a small amount of powdered sugar. The cookies are very sweet so you don’t have to have an overload of sugar. Set aside until ready to use.

To make the raspberry sauce, combine the frozen raspberries in a small sauce pan and heat until the berries start to break down. You can add a little sugar to the sauce if you feel it’s necessary. No more than 1 Tablespoon since the tangy of the berries helps to balance this dessert.

To assemble the trifle, layer the chopped Berger cookies, lemon pudding, raspberry sauce and whipped cream. Create as many layers as your dish will allow. Top the finished trifle with any remaining cookies! Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
