Happy April Strawberry Fool Day!

What else could I make for April Fool’s Day, but Raspberry Fool?  Ha ha, gotcha.  I made Strawberry Fool…had some fresh strawberries I needed to use up before they turned fuzzy.

Strawberry Fool


1/2  pint whipping cream

1/4 c. confectioner’s sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 lb. fresh strawberries, minced.  You could use frozen, but you may need to drain them after defrosting.

2 T sugar


Combine the whipping cream, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla.  Whip to stiff peaks.  Chill.

Place minced strawberries in a bowl with the sugar.  Combine well and allow to macerate for at least 10 minutes.

Fold into whipped cream.

Spoon into dessert glasses and chill for 1 to 3 hours.

Garnish each with a fresh strawberry and serve.

4 to 6 servings.
