My favorite cookies are called "Domino". Domino cookies have been sold in Finland since 1953. They are cocoa cookies with a filling. The original flavour for the filling is vanilla, but nowadays there are also many other flavours. I like mint filling the best, vanilla being a close runner-up. :)
I had been thinking of making somekind of a dessert using Domino cookies for a while, but Pioneer Woman's ingenious flower pot desserts, where she used crushed Oreo cookies as "dirt", made me want to crush some cookies, too. :) The result: Domino Trifle!!
This is a very easy dessert to make, or let's say, I made a very easy version of it. If you want to make your own fruit soup to use in your trifle, it will be a bit more difficult. And if you opt for the very, very easy version you crush the cookies with the filling and use store bought whipped cream. As I did not measure any of the incredients I used, all the measurements, except the amount of cream, are only approximate.
100 g Domino cookies with vanilla filling (you can use Oreos or other cookies with filling as well)
2-3 dl peach-passion fruit soup (or other fruit soup of your choice)
2 dl whipping cream
vanilla sugar to taste
1. Open the cookies and scrape out the filling with a spoon. Put the filling aside for later.
2. Put the fillingless cookies into the food processor and pulse a few times until they are of a fine sandlike consistency.
3. In a bowl combine the whipping cream, a pinch of vanilla sugar and the filling you removed from the cookies. Do not worry if the filling is in clumbs. It will even out just fine when you whip the cream. Whip the cream until hard (not butter, though;))
4. Use vine glasses or other nice glasses that show off the layers of the trifle for this dessert. Put about a third of the crushed cookies into the bottom of each glass. Save about 1/2 teaspoon chrushed cookies for decoration.
5. Carefully pour some fruit soup on top of the crushed cookies.
6. Fill the classes to the brim with whipped cream. Decorate with a pinch of cookie crumbs.
7. En- joy!!
