Blackberry Fool


Happy April Fools Day!  No, this isn’t a goofy gag or a silly prank!  This pretty little treat is actually called a fool.  A fool  is an British dessert generally made by mixing pureed fruit, whipped cream and sugar.

Originally the most common fruit ingredient in fools was gooseberries, but I opted for blackberries.  To make this easy {yet very pretty} dessert you simply puree your  fruit and swirl it through the whipped cream.



Blackberry Fool Recipe


1 cup frozen blackberries, thawed*

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar


Process  berries and sugar in blender until pureed.  Use a rubber spatula to press mixture through a sieve set over a bowl; discard solids.

Whip heavy cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.

Gently  fold in the blackberry puree with the cream, leaving streaks of the cream.  Use a small spoon to marble the puree – don’t over mix.

Spoon into 4 small dessert cups.  {Drizzle any remaining puree in the bowl over the top.} Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Garnish with additional fruit if desired and serve with cookies.

* use any fresh or thawed berries
