    1/4 c  Med-dry sherry                           Garnish:
           Custard:                            2 tb Pistachio nuts, shelled and
      7 lg Egg yolks                                -hopped
      1 c  Sugar                                    Candied citron or angelica,
      2 c  Milk, scalded & cooled                   -ut into bits
    1/2 c  Heavy cream, scalded & coole             Raspberry jam, seedless
 
  In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, and vanilla,
  until the mixture is thick and pale.  Sift the flour and baking powder over
  the egg mixture and fold them into it gently but thoroughly. Line the
  bottom of a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with parchment paper, spread the batter
  in the pan and bake in a preheated 400f oven for 8 minutes or until it is
  puffed and golden.  Invert onto a lightly sugared kitchen towel.
  
  In a small saucepan, melt the jam over low heat.  Stir in kirsch and spread
  the surface of the cake with the jam mixture.  Starting with a long side
  and using the towel as a guide, roll up the cake, jelly-roll fashion and
  sprinkle it with Sherry.  Wrap the sponge roll firmly in the towel. Let it
  cool and cut int into 3/4-inch slices.
  
  In a bowl, set over a saucepan of simmering water, beat the yolks and the
  sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture is thick and pale. Remove
  from heat and stir in gradually, milk, cream, and vanilla. Cook the custard
  in the bowl over the simmering water, until it registers 170f on a candy
  thermometer.  Transfer the custard to a metal bowl and whisk in the creme
  fraiche and Sherry.  Set the bowl in a larger bowl of ice water and whisk
  until custard is cool.  Chill it, covering surface with plastic wrap, until
  it is cold.
  
  Assembly:     In the bottom of a 2-1/2-qt. trifle bowl, scatter half the
  amaretti crumbs.  Top them with half the sponge roll slices, and top those
  with the remaining amaretti crumbs.  Sprinkle the Sherry over the remaining
  sponge roll slices, line the side of the bowl with the slices, and pour in
  the custard, spreading it to let it seep down around the sided and bottom.
  Chill the trifle for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.
  
  Just before serving, in a bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream until
  it is stiff.  Transfer it to a pastry bag, fitted with a decorative tip and
  pipe rosettes around the edge and in the center of the trifle. Sprinkle
  pistachios over the trifle and garnish the rosettes with the citron and
  small drops of jam.
