18 ounces raspberries (about 4 1/2 cups; see Notes)
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. sugar
2 tablespoons raspberry liqueur (optional)
1 pint heavy whipping cream


1. In a medium bowl, mash with a fork 12 oz. raspberries (about 3 cups), 2 tbsp. sugar, and the liqueur, if using. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whip cream with remaining sugar using a mixer or whisk until firm peaks form. With a spatula, fold in raspberry-liqueur mixture. Divide fool among 8 glasses or bowls and top with remaining fresh raspberries. Serve immediately or cover and chill for up to 2 hours.

Frozen berries are fine here: Use 12 oz. berries and garnish with fresh mint leaves instead of fresh berries.
