“With the great new fat free or lite toppings available, "Fools" don't have to be such a guilty pleasure. I've added variations for apricot, blackberry, peach or nectarine, and strawberry fools. You don't have to buy superfine sugar. Simply put granulated sugar in a blender and blend until powdery. Do up a batch and you'll have it on hand.”

  1. Place 1/2 cup of the raspberries, superfine sugar and water in a small saucepan; cover and, over low heat, cook until the sugar dissolves.
  2. Stir occasionally and continue to cook another 10 minutes, until berries are soft; uncover and cook 1 minute; remove from heat and cool completely.
  3. Puree all the contents of the saucepan and sieve to remove seeds; chill, covered, 6-8 hours.
  4. (If desired, whip the heavy cream until it begins to mound; add confectioners' sugar and vanilla and beat until firm peaks form).
  5. Pour the raspberry puree into a bowl and stir 1/4 cup of whatever cream is being used into the puree; fold in the remaining cream and remaining raspberries.
