Hailing from England, a fool is a custard-based dessert mixed with cooked fruit. Here, we substitute coconut cream and crème fraiche for the custard and stir in lightly sweetened cherries. Layered with fresh nectarines, this is one of the easiest and prettiest desserts you can make.
It really doesn’t get any easier than this foil-packet cherry crumble! For the fastest prep, opt for frozen cherries, which are already pitted, and thaw them overnight in the fridge. Be sure to drain any cherry juices after thawing to keep your crumble from becoming soggy.

The slow cooker makes this moist chocolate brownie a cinch to prepare. For the topping, dark sweet cherries are simmered with maple sugar to yield a glossy crimson sauce. If you’re trying to avoid caffeine, omit the espresso powder.
Chickpeas and walnuts add flavor and protein, while cherries add a touch of sweetness to these quick couscous lettuce wraps.
