“Oh, what is it?” my husband wondered looking at the glass filled with fruit and whipped topping.
“A fool, ” I answered.
“Are you calling it a fool or me a fool?” he asked.
I suppose that was a valid question and yes, I was calling the dessert a fool because that’s exactly what it was, a mixed berry fool. For answers about that name, I’m going to have to question the English about it because this sweet is their creation.
A fool is basically a no-bake, fruit filled delight and I’ve been all about the no-bake foods lately since it’s been so warm in my part of the country. Plus, I really wanted to take advantage of all the yummy Summer berries before they’re gone for the season.
