Traditional English trifle calls for a cooked soft custard, which can be tricky to make. This foolproof lemon-flavored pudding mixture goes together in seconds in the food processor.

Ingredients

2
(8-oz.) pkg. fat-free cream cheese
2
(3.4-oz.) pkg. instant lemon pudding and pie filling mix
2
cups skim milk
1
tablespoon grated lemon peel
1
cup fresh lemon juice (4 to 5 lemons)
1
(8-oz.) container frozen light whipped topping, thawed
3
(3-oz.) pkg. ladyfingers, split

Steps

  • 1 In food processor bowl with metal blade, combine cream cheese, pudding mixes, milk, lemon peel and lemon juice; process until smooth.* Gently fold in whipped topping until well blended.
  • 2 Arrange 1/3 of split ladyfingers in bottom of 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Spoon 1/3 of pudding mixture evenly over ladyfingers. Repeat, forming 2 additional layers.

Expert Tips

* If food processor is unavailable, beat cream cheese in large bowl with electric mixer until fluffy. Add milk; beat well. Gradually add 1 package pudding mix and lemon juice; beat until blended. Add remaining pudding mix and lemon peel; beat until well combined.

When grating lemon, lime or orange peel, wash and dry the fruit well first. As you grate the peel, use a light hand to remove just the flavorful colored part of the peel, not the bitter white "pith."
