Fresh Berry Fool – It Would be a Pity Not to Make This for Labor Day

Posted on
By the way, contrary to what you heard in the introduction, this isn’t called a “fool” because it’s so ridiculously simple to make. Apparently, it comes from the French word, “fouler,” which means “to mash.” I guess we’ll let you decide which story to go with. I think you know which one I prefer. Either way, I really do hope you get this fool a try soon. Enjoy!
Ingredients for four large portions:
3 cups fresh berries (raspberries, broken blackberries, quartered strawberries)
1/4 to 1/3 cup white sugar (more sugar you use the more syrup you get)
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup chilled heavy cream
1/4 cup crème fraiche (yogurt or sour cream maybe subbed – *if using yogurt or sour cream, stir into the cream once it’s almost fully whipped)
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup crumbled butter shortbread cookies, or vanilla wafers
