Although the dictionary defines trifle as something insignificant, this dazzling dessert is anything but. Hosts have been impressing their guests for hundreds of years by serving trifle. The earliest known trifle recipe was published in a book called “The Good Huswife’s Jewell” in 1596. The recipe called for a thick cream flavored with sugar, ginger and rosewater. Some sixty years later milk was added to the sugar mixture with eggs to create a custard and was poured over alcohol soaked bread. From these humble beginnings, a stunning dessert was born.
Paula’s Pumpkin Gingerbread Trifle is as simple as it is spectacular. In no time you will be impressing your holiday guests with this spicy version. Serve it in a large decorative trifle dish for a big bang of visual appeal, or try what Paula loves to do and line up individual servings on a buffet in decorative small mason jars with a hand stamped name card tied with a strand of ribbon or twine on each jar. Your guests will have fun finding their own dessert, and even more fun eating it!

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
