- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 large eggs
- 2 cups 1% low-fat milk

Directions See How It's Made
- To make custard, in bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, salt and eggs until smooth. Slowly whisk in milk.
- Transfer mixture to heavy bottomed saucepan. Place over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, about 5 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Reduce heat to low; whisk 1 minute more. Remove from heat; whisk in vanilla.
- Transfer to bowl; place a sheet of plastic wrap directly onto surface of custard. Refrigerate until cold.
- Place 1 slice angel food in bottom of a 1-cup individual glass dish; sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of sherry. Spread 2 tablespoons strawberries evenly over cake; spread 1/3 cup custard over strawberries. Top with 2 tablespoons strawberries; garnish with whipped cream and almonds.
- Repeat with remaining ingredients to make 6 individual servings.
- Alternative: Assemble trifle in 1 6-cup glass serving dish.
