The easiest mousse you can make (and a nice excuse to eat copious amounts of whipped cream). This is a perfect treatment for raspberries, which require no cooking at all to be tender, but a fool can also be made with any soft, ripe (or frozen) fruit (most you won’t even need to strain after puréeing).


INGREDIENTS

2 to 3 cups raspberries
1/2 cup superfine or confectioners’ sugar, plus 1 tablespoon sugar, plus more if needed
1 cup cream, preferably not ultra-pasteurized

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Purée about one-third of the raspberries in a blender with 1/4 cup of the sugar. Force the purée through a sieve to remove the seeds. Taste; the purée should be quite sweet. If not, add a little more sugar.
