“This is a lovely dessert for guests. To create Strawberry-Sugar Biscuit Trifle in a beatiful checkerboard pattern, arrange strawberry halves around outside edge of dish, leaving space between. Then use an iced tea spoon to carefully spoon custard between the berries. When prepping for this recipe, make the custard first; then bake the biscuits, and prepare the fruit. This dessert makes a beautiful presentation. Prep time included chilling time. From Southern Living.”
