This is the absolute best and easiest and tastiest and yummiest treat in the world! Yes, all of those things and much more! This is typically called Fruit Fool so feel free to use your fruit of choice, we just happen to love the raspberry version. You can also marinate your berries with liqueur. PERFECT for summer get togethers where you put it in fancy dishes or if you are hungry and want something delectable to eat all by yourself and you use your mixer bowl with a spoon…either way Raspberry Fool is Ryder’s very favorite and I am gonna share it with you!
- 3 cups Raspberries, Plus A Few More For Serving
- 1/4 cup Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons Raspberry Liqueur (or You May Just Use Water)
- 2 cups Cold Heavy Cream
- 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
- 8 whole Vanilla Wafers (or Other Cookie)
- Fresh Mint Sprigs, For Garnish (optional)
In a bowl, stir together the raspberries, sugar, and liqueur (or water) and let it sit for 10 to 15 minutes.
Whip the cream with the powdered sugar until soft peaks form.
Mash the raspberries with a fork until all the liquid and fruit are mashed together.
Spoon half the fruit into the cream and fold once or twice with a rubber spatula; do not overmix!
Add half of the remaining fruit and fold once or twice. If you want more fruit, add the rest; if not, use remaining fruit puree as a garnish on top.
Serve in pretty glasses with crumbed cookies on top! I did not have cookies so I compensated with a berry and a mint sprig!
