Blackberry Fool Ingredients

1-1/2 cups fresh blackberries 1 chipotle chile, stemmed (from a can of chipotles in adobo sauce) 3 T light brown sugar 1 tsp. fresh lime juice 1 cup heavy cream 1-1/2 T confectioners sugar 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Directions

Set a medium-mesh sieve over a medium bowl. Use the back of a wooden spoon to push 1 cup of the blackberries and the chipotle through the sieve, smearing the berries and chile back and forth across the mesh until only seeds and pulp remain. Scrape any purée from the bottom of the sieve. Stir the brown sugar and lime juice into the purée. In a chilled medium metal bowl, combine the cream, confectioners sugar, and vanilla and beat with an electric hand mixer on high speed until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Pour the blackberry mixture over the cream. Use a butter knife to gently stir the mixture so that thin streaks of dark purple run through the cream. Spoon the mixture into 4 glasses or small dessert bowls and top with the remaining blackberries.

Ingredients

Glazed Peach Tart

½ cup butter, chilled, cut into chunks 4 oz. cream cheese 1 ½ cups flour 6 peaches, peeled and thinly sliced, approx. 2 ½ lbs.

½ cup packed brown sugar 1 tsp. cinnamon ¼ tsp. nutmeg ¼ cup cornstarch ½ cup peach or apricot jam, warmed

Directions

Put flour into the bowl of a food processor. Cut in butter and cream cheese. Keep processor running until dough is formed. Shape the dough into a round disk, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. In bowl, combine brown sugar with spices and cornstarch. Toss the peaches with this, and set aside. (If peaches are very juicy, might have to add 1-2 T more cornstarch.) Preheat oven to 375˚. Lightly spray or grease a ten inch tart pan. Roll out chilled pastry on a lightly floured surface to form about a twelve inch circle. Transfer the dough to the tart pan so that it fits on bottom and up sides. Trim any crust hanging over edges. Arrange cut peaches (and all the juice) attractively over bottom of crust. Bake in preheated oven about 30 minutes or until crust is lightly brown. Remove from oven and brush with warm jam. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side.
