I bought two cartoons of raspberries today. So now I had to figure out what I was going to do with them? It's hot out so I knew it had to be something cool and light. I turned to some of my favorite dessert ingredients and sure enough this dessert came together. I call it a Raspberry Fool because a Fool is a British dessert that is made out of cream and pureed fruit. Well, I changed mine up so it's going to taste like a Cheesecake married a Fool.
To make my Fool you will need:
1 pint of raspberries (divide into two)
1 tub Cool Whip Topping
1 14oz can of condense milk
2 (8oz) bricks of cream cheese
1 lemon (zest and juice)
Beat the cream cheese, condense milk, lemon juice and zest until cream. Add half of your raspberries and blend with the mixer until raspberries get a bit pureed into the mixture. Then fold in the cool whip topping. Chill for 4 hours before serving.
Garnish with more fresh raspberries and serve. Enjoy.
Note: You can also put this filling into a graham cracker pie crust and serve it as a no bake pie.
