This raspberry fool recipe is the hardest dessert you'll ever make...just kidding, fooled ya! It's actually very easy to make and can be whipped up (literally) in just 20 minutes. Sweetened (and sometimes flavored) whipped cream and fruit puree are layered into beautiful glass bowls. You can use fruit preserves or puree fresh or frozen fruits in a food processor or blender (don't forget to stain the seeds!). Serve this simple dessert with a buttery cookie and a sprig of mint.
3 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Chambord
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
mint for garnish
In a medium bowl gently toss berries with sugar, liqueur, and lemon juice. Let sit for 20 min.
