Blackberry Fools

I couldn't help myself.  My mind works like skipping stones on a lake, except, in a rather erratic pattern I must confess.  I was writing my article about New Orleans you see, and I kept reminiscing about the blackberry picking we used to do as schoolchildren.  Then, I saw this delicious recipe in a magazine sitting right next to me.  No kidding, the page had fallen open to these "Blackberry Fools".

Was the title taunting me?  Would I be a "fool" not to make this delicious concoction?  Sucker I am.  Here they are.  Low fat they are not.  How do I know?  Because I tried to whip up some half and half that I had in the fridge.  Half and half does not whip.  At all.  Darn it.  Now I was hooked.  I had to stop off at the store, buy some ridiculously high fat c-r-e-a-m and whip this up.

Worth it?


Blackberry Fools:

1 cup of cream
1 Tbsp. confectioners sugar
1 cup of Blackberry Jam
Garnish ( I used peppermint leaves)

In your electric mixer, whip up the cream and confectioners sugar.  Fold or swirl in the blackberry jam.  Ladle carefully into your favorite glass cups.  Garnish, embellish, or fancy them up however you please!
