• 1 pint strawberries, washed and hulled, with 6 reserved
• 2 cups heavy cream
• 1/2 cup Baileys Irish Cream
• confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Undoubtedly, one of the prettiest fruit fools is made with strawberries, and
this version adds Baileys Irish Cream for a little zip! The alternating layers
of deep colored puréed fruit and the lighter whipped strawberry/cream are a
picture-perfect ending to a spring meal.
Chill 6 stem glasses while preparing the fruit. In a food processor or
blender, purée the strawberries until smooth. In a small bowl, with an electric
mixer on high speed, whip the cream until stiff. Add half the strawberry purée
and the Baileys to the cream and blend until smooth. Remove glasses from
refrigerator and divide the strawberry/cream mix into the bottom quarter of
each. Spoon over the fruit purée, and continue to alternate layers of cream
with fruit. Slice the reserved strawberries over the top of each glass and
sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
