Recipe adapted from Williams-Sonoma Food made Fast Series
2 ½ Cups Fresh Blackberries
2 Cups Whipping Cream, chilled
¼ Cup Confectioners’ Sugar
1 Tbsp Brandy
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
In a blender or food processor, puree 1 ½ cup of the blackberries. Using a rubber spatula, press the puree through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl. Discard the seeds.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat together the cream, sugar, brandy and vanilla until firm peaks form.
Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the blackberry puree and the remaining whole blackberries into the whipped cream. Spoon the fool into glass and serve immediately.
