To make trifle you need to have lots of pieces ready all at once, so this would be my suggested order. Prepare custard and set to chill (this generally takes a while), then prepare cherries, next prepare peaches, finally make the whipped cream last, and do it right before you are ready to put everything together.
I would suggest fresh homemade firm whipped cream, from some sort of stand or hand mixer - I have never found whipped cream from a can or a home nitrous system to have the firmness you would want to have this keep together.
Also trifle should sit for a while to let juices soak into the cookies, and flavors to blend, I would suggest making it the night before you intend to serve it and storing it in the fridge over night.
Prepare Custard according to package or other recipe.Chill
1. Slice the peaches into 1/8" slices
2. Put some ice and water in a large bowl, and float a smaller bowl (either metal or pyrex) in the ice water, this bowl will be used to quickly cool your cooked peaches.
3. Put lemon juice and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Turn on medium heat and dissolve the sugar in the lemon juice.
4. When the sugar is dissolved, add in cinnamon and turn up heat to M. High.
5. While the sugar mixture is heating up, in a separate small bowl mix corn starch with a little cold water.
6. When the liquid in the sauce pan is simmering, whisk in the corn starch and water and let simmer for a few minutes to thicken.
7. When the mixture thickens so it lightly coats a spoon, start adding the peaches in small batches. Cook for about 1 minute, remove from liquid with a slotted spoon and put in the heat resistant bowl.
6. Rest the bowl with the peaches in the bowl of ice water.
7. Repeat Step 5 until all the peaches are cooked. Adding ice to the ice water as needed to keep the peaches chilling.
8. Let the peaches sit for at least 1/2 hr. or until cool.
1. Pit Cherries
2. Slice cherries in 1/2
3. Soak the Cherries in some Amaretto (1/2 hr at least)
1. Add heavy cream to chilled bowl
2. Whip until really firm - be careful to stop short of turning it into butter.
Putting it all together -
Pull all of your prepared pieces together -
In your straight sided glass bowl - (my bowl takes two layers to fill, if yours will have more layers divide (or increase) your ingredients as appropriate)
1. Add a layer of Lady finger cookies at the bottom of the bowl - cover as much of the bottom of the bowl as possible.
2 Stir the peaches and then pour off any large amount of excessive liquid, leaving a little to get added with each peach layer. Similarly drain most of the extra liquid from the cherries.
3. Paint a layer of jam on the Lady fingers.
4. Add 1/2 of the peaches as the next layer, keeping some of the syrup with them is good..
5. Add 1/2 of the cherries as the next layer.
6. Smooth 1/2 of the custard/pudding down as the next layer.
7. Smooth 1/2 of the whipped cream down as a the next layer.
8. Repeat steps 3-7.
Sprinkle the crushed Amaretti cookies on top and (optional) drizzle a little melted chocolate over the top for decoration.
