Mini Peach Pie and Sweet Waffle Trifles

I have recently become an addict of waffles.  It’s true.  I finally caved and ordered a plate of Chicken and Waffles in Washington, DC a few weeks ago, and since that moment, I’ve been a goner.

Now, no, this post is not about Chicken and Waffles.  Though hold your horses – that time will come.  I made some adorable Chicken & Waffle Appetizer Bites that I can’t wait to share with you (and there will be a not too tiny giveaway to go along with it from one of my favorite sponsors!)  This post, however, is just a bit….sweeter.

And way easier than frying chicken, I can guarantee you that.

Mini Peach Pie and Sweet Waffle Trifles.

I made a batch of waffles, probably as sweet as any waffles can be made.  But that wasn’t enough. Oh, no.  Don’t hold back.  Cinnamon whipped cream and peach pie filling got thrown into the mix.

I’m lazy, what can I say?  I love using pie filling when I can.

And – I use Lucky Leaf, as you may very well know.   They are such a fun company (and I am happy to have them as a repeat sponsor here on Doughmesstic).  I even went to their canning plants in Pennsylvania last year – and let me tell you, from experience, it’s top notch.  Fresh ingredients, straight into the cans.  And?  I don’t have to make it myself…which is even easier.

Yessss.

So the trifles.

Super easy, and too cute.  I mean, really – look at them!  Perfect for a little Sunday Brunch dessert, no?  You could use blueberry or raspberry filling as well…that would be yummy.  I think just about any flavor would work well in this recipe!
