Bake the Brownies at 325*F. For 35-40 minutes. Do not over bake.

*2 pounds strawberries washed, dried and quartered

Whipped Cream

Whip the heavy cream until it starts to thicken, add vanilla and gradually add the confectioners’ sugar and whip until it is double in bulk and sticks to the beaters. Be careful not to over whip or it will become clumpy looking.

Put whipped cream in a pastry bag with no tip or a large hole tip and pipe onto the bottom of the glass trifle bowl and In-between layers of brownies and strawberries.
