Peach Berry Trifle

24 oz. pound cake, cut into small squares
1 ½ t. bourbon (optional)
1 can sweetened condensed milk
4 ½ cups fresh peaches, sliced
3 cups milk
2 - 3 ½ oz. packs instant vanilla pudding
1 - 8 oz. pack cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
3 cups strawberries
3 cups blueberries

In a large trifle dish or bowl, line the bottom with 1/3 of the cake squares.  Sprinkle with ½ t. bourbon (if desired).  Drizzle with 1/3 of the condensed milk.  Top with 1/3 of the peaches.

In a mixing bowl, stir pudding and milk well for about 5 minutes.  Fold in cream cheese and sugar and mix well.  Top the peaches with 1/3 of the pudding mixture.  Top the pudding with ½ of the strawberries.  Repeat with layers of the cake topped with bourbon and condensed milk, peaches, and pudding.  Then use a layer of blueberries (instead of strawberries).  Repeat the layers a 3rd time, finishing with blueberries and strawberries on top.
