    bluemoon downunder's Note:

    Just loved the wording in this quick and easy recipe from "The Vancouver Sun Newspaper", which I found on the StrawberryJAMM website. In what I’ve included here as step two is an invitation to make a decision! A decision as to what sort of fool you want to make: ‘a smooth fool or a lumpy fool’! I haven’t made this recipe – yet. Have just added it in preparation for the May 2005 "Let’s Get Fresh and SWAP - Recipe Swap". But I do find it appealing, in its simplicity and its quaintness. And in what sounds like its sheer deliciousness. Must confess I’d want to sneak in some liqueur.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Whip 1/2 cup (125 mL.) whipping cream and stir in 3/4 cup (175 mL.) of dairy sour cream or créme fraiche.
    2. 2
      Then make a decision: Do you want a smooth fool or a lumpy fool? If the answer is smooth, puree 4 cups (1 L.) of berries with 1/2 cup (125 mL.) sugar (less if they taste sweet enough) in a blender or food processor. Fold the cream into the fruit puree and chill. If you want a lumpy fool, mash the strawberries and sugar together with a potato masher, then fold in the cream.

      So light and wonderful! My DH doesn't appreciate desserts at all, but devoured this! My 2-year-old niece loved it as well! Thanks so much for this easy, simple, tasteful recipe!

      Awesome!!! Made this to serve one and it was a great treat for breakfast for me!! I know it should be considered a dessert, but I figured that it has the calcium and fruit so I made it breakfast, and what a great treat for breakfast!!! I also made this a smooth fool, as I used frozen strawberries, no longer in season. Thanks for sharing bluemoon!!! Made for stars tag!!!!

      This is terrific. SO easy and yummy. I was a bit short on the strawberries so I made up the difference with some frozen raspberries. It was a great flavor pairing that I whizzed to smooth. I skipped the whipped cream to save a bit on the fat and used fat free sour cream. It was still delicious and a very worthy way to use the last of this years berries.
