    1 1/2   tb           Cornstarch
      1/2   c            Half & Half
    1 3/4   c            Whole Milk
    3       tb           Granulated Sugar
    1       t            Vanilla
    3                    Egg Yolks, Beaten
   10       oz           Pound or Sponge Cake
      1/3   c            Strawberry Jam
    3       tb           Cream Sherry
    3       c            Strawberries
    1       c            Whipping Cream
    2       tb           Powdered Sugar
    1       t            Vanilla
   Prepare the custard first: Mix the cornstarch with the
   half & half. Heat the milk with the sugar just to
   boiling in a heavy saucepan. Remove from the heat.
   Stir in the cornstarch mixture. Return to heat. Cook,
   stirring, until the mixture thickens. Simmer 2 or 3
   minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the vanilla and the
   egg yolks. Whisk until almost cold. Cover. Chill.
   Prepare the trifle: Cut the cake into even slices.
   Spread each with jam and reassemble the cake. Cut into
   2 cubes. Arrange the cubes in individual bowls.
   Sprinkle with cream sherry. Wash and slice the
   strawberries. Set a few strawberries aside for
   garnish. Divide the strawberries among the individual
   bowls. Pour the custard over the strawberries and cake
   in the bowls. Drizzle with a little strawberry jam.
   Cover each bowl. Chill. Whip the cream until soft
   peaks form. Add the sugar and vanilla. Garnish each
   trifle with some sliced strawberries. Top with whipped
   cream. Chill briefly. Serve.
