1. Prepare the compote: Combine all ingredients in a small pot over high heat and cook until it starts bubbling.
2. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until thickened. Set aside to cool completely.
3. Prepare the crumble: Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
4. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix until evenly distributed.
5. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring halfway through. Set aside to cool completely.
6. Prepare the whipped cream: Pour whip in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
7. Beat on high speed until it forms stiff peaks. Add marshmallow fluff and vanilla extract, beat until combined.
8. Prepare the lemon creme: place all ingredients in bowl. Mix to combine.
9. To assemble, place cookie crumble in the bottom of a glass or jar. Add compote, lemon creme, then garnish with whipped cream and berries.
Plan ahead: Trifles can be made ahead of time and frozen until ready to serve. You can serve frozen, partially frozen, or fully defrosted.
Tip: You can skip the lemon creme and whipped cream and serve this trifle layered with vanilla ice cream or lemon sorbet instead.
