Fool is a traditional Irish dessert that combines fruit, heavy whipping cream and sugar to make a ridiculously delicious dish. This recipe is for berry fool, but you can substitute the fruit for rhubarb, apples, mango or any other fruit that would work with whipping cream.

– 2 cup heavy whipping cream
– 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– 1 cup raspberries
– 1 cup blackberries
– 1 cup strawberries, cut in half with tops removed
– ½ cup blueberries

First, wash all of the berries and place them in a large bowl. Mix them with the sugar and vanilla and set the bowl aside for 15 to 20 minutes. The berries will be soft and sweet after soaking for the designated time. While the berries are breaking down, whip the cream until semi-stiff peaks form in the bowl. Once the berries are done, fold the fruit into the cream and make sure that it is mixed thoroughly. If you don’t want the fool to be too sweet, only soak half of the berries in the sugar and mix both fresh and macerated fruit into the cream.

It may seem like an incredibly simple recipe, but it is very addicting with a deceptively sweet flavor. One plating suggestion is to eat the fool on top of ice cream with scones or with shortbread. It’s yummy by itself as well.
