With only 4 ingredients, you can whip up this Raspberry Fool in no time! It’s an impressive dessert throughout the year, but it’s especially nice during the holidays!
I am excited to be joining some of my bloggy friends for a fun Merry Berry Holiday Hop! Originally, I had intended on sharing a berry cheesecake recipe …. but that didn’t turn out so well. I need to work on that recipe a bit before I can share it! LOL. It was not good, y’all. Not good at all. I couldn’t even salvage it.
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
4 tbsp. granulated sugar, divided
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Additional raspberries, for garnish (optional)
Mint, for garnish (optional)
In a medium bowl, combine the raspberries with 2 tbsp. of sugar. Let the mixture stand for 10 minutes. Place 1 cup of the raspberry mixture into a food processor or blender. Cover and process until the berries are pureed. Stir the pureed fruit back into the fruit in the bowl. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
Meanwhile, combine the heavy whipping cream, remaining 2 tbsp. sugar and vanilla in a chilled mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer using chilled beaters on medium speed until almost stiff peaks forms. Cover and refrigerate until ready to prepare the desserts.
With a rubber spatula, gently fold the fruit into the whipped cream mixture, being careful to leave some visible swirls. Divide the mixture between 4 to 6 small dessert glasses. Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 2 hours before serving.
If desired, garnish with extra raspberries and/or mint leaves before serving.
