Blackberry Fool

The steps to making Blackberry Fool.
This time of year I absolutely cannot get enough berries to eat.  I love them all: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.  I picked up quarts of each while shopping this morning, with no cue as to what I'd do with them other than juice them or just eat them.  Then my eyes fell upon a stack of Everyday Food magazines and would you believe it, this one was on top.  
I know what you're thinking -- Good gravy, Marie, this woman has food magazines from 2008 lying around her house!  Well, yes...and no.  This was one I had kept (the only one from that year, I swear it!) because of the berry recipes.  So, since so much time had passed, I decided to give the Blackberry Fool recipe a try. Heaven!

A delicious, light dessert that is easy to make (takes all of 15 minutes!), and worthy of an everyday meal or one for guests.  You can substitute raspberries or strawberries for the blackberries if you prefer, but do give the blackberries a try, they are astoundingly good for you, and the taste is sublime!

I am always buying blackberries at the supermarket - what a great dessert to use them for.

We have so many blackberry vines around here - I'm pulling them out left and right and we'll still have tons. We make ice cream and pies, but I like the sound of a Fool!

OMG... *drool* I think I know what I'll be making when the blackberries ripen in a few months... (They're not even in bloom yet here...)

Wish I had seen this deliciousness last week, when Dierbergs had 10 for 10 blackberries. I bought a couple of boxes and should have picked up more. They were beautiful and sweet.

I will definitely try this recipe.

I have cooking magazines that are a couple or three years old, too.
