Banana-Raspberry Fool

Cuisinart original

This versatile dessert can be made with just about any fruit. Follow the same instructions but substitute your favorite fruit in place of the raspberries and bananas – you may also have to adjust the sugar amount to taste, depending on the ripeness of the fruit used.


Makes 6 servings


2 medium bananas, cut into 1-inch pieces 2 tablespoons light or dark brown sugar pinch table salt 1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) raspberries ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1½ cups heavy cream, well chilled 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
