Raspberry Fool - A Family Feast

Raspberry Fool

  • Prep Time: 1 hour 10 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings


Note: Fresh raspberries may also be used in this recipe but you will likely need more than what is called for in this recipe. Additional sugar may be needed. Also note: We did not strain the raspberry seeds out of the purée – but if you don’t like the texture of the small seeds, feel free to strain the purée through a sieve before stirring into the whipped cream.


  • 1 cup frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 3/8 cup granulated sugar, divided
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish (optional)


  1. Place the thawed berries into a small bowl along with 1/8 cup of the sugar. Using the back of a large spoon, mash the berries against the side of the bowl until you have a purée and stir to mix well with the sugar. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, pour in the heavy cream and remaining ¼ cup of sugar. Whip on high until stiff peaks form.
  3. Fold the raspberry purée into the whipped cream in spoonfuls, stirring just until you see ribbons of raspberry throughout the whipped cream. (If you want, you can hold back stirring in some of the raspberry purée to get the ribbon effect you desire, and use any leftovers as a topping.)
  4. Spoon into individual serving glasses and chill 1 hour before serving.
