Deadpool, the merc with the mouth, dressed in raspberry and black, in not your average comic book movie! And what a mouth this guy has! There was no question why this movie is rated R. Definitely not for the faint of heart! But funny, and he liked to fool around, annoying people, so hence the Raspberry Fool. (yes, that is the actual name of this dessert!) Fool is an English dessert that used to be made with stewed fruit and custard, but has transformed into a very simple dessert with whipped cream, sugar and raspberries that is, well, foolproof!

This is a very short and sweet recipe with not a lot of photos. Basically, you whip the heavy cream with the sugar (a bowl of white!), puree your raspberries, you can add liqueur or orange juice if you like, fold the puree and whipped cream together, all the way, or just swirled and serve…see, even a fool can do it!
Here’s the raspberry puree, just chillin’. I left the seeds in for texture, but you can strain if you like for extra smoothness.
Deadpool Raspberry Fool
1/2 pint heavy cream, cold
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 cups frozen raspberries, thawed
2 tablespoons raspberry liqueur or orange juice
Fresh raspberries for garnish
Whip the chilled heavy cream, gradually adding sugar and whip until stiff peaks form.
In food processor, puree the thawed raspberries, strain out those little seeds if you like, and add juice or liqueur if using.
Fold desired amount of puree into the whipped cream. Fold in partially, or until completely combined.
Spoon into serving dishes, parfait glasses or small bowls. Garnish with fresh raspberries and serve immediately.
Makes 2-4 servings, or 1 if you’re really hungry!
