For the Berry Sauce

  • 12 ounces raspberries frozen or fresh
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey

For the Whipped Cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons honey


  • In a small sauce pan add the berries, lemon juice and honey. Stir and bring to a slow simmer over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally until berries break down and the sauce thickens--about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Set sauce aside to cool. This may take an hour or so.
  • To make the whipped cream, place the cream in a bowl large enough to hold double the amount of cream.
  • Add the vanilla and beat with a hand mixer or stand mixer on high 3 to 4 minutes until starting to bubble and thicken slightly.
  • Add the honey and continue to beat until stiff peaks form--another 4 or so minutes depending on how strong your mixer is. If your berries are cooled to room temp, you can assemble your fools.

How to assemble:

  • In small bowls or 1-cup jars, add 1/2 teapoon of berry sauce to the bottom of your jar. Alternate with a tablespoon or so of cream, then more berry sauce and cream until the jar is full.
  • Swirl the mixture a couple of times with knife, but don't blend it together. Streaks are supposed to show! Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 4 hours.
