A fruit fool has been around for a good long time. Wikipedia says since the mid-16th century! It is traditionally a combination of pureed fruit and custard or cream.
I decided to use some those amazing strawberries that keep coming from my garden to try this dessert out.
I used 3 cups of strawberries. I diced them up and then sprinkled them with sugar and let them sit for a bit.
I then pureed up one cup of the strawberries and left the other two cups diced. Whip up some cream and mix together some plain Greek yogurt and brown sugar.
I topped mine with a little bit more whipped cream and a Lorna Doone cookie.
