New England berry dessert recipe: The Flummery

In no more than 15 minutes, you can prepare this easy dessert for 4. You can vary the recipe by using any one of the berries or any combination. Also try ice cream or yogurt instead of cream.

For another berry dessert recipe most people haven't heard of, try the Blueberry Cream Cheese Fool. (Click on link for recipe.)
