Fool recipes have been around since the Middle Ages. The earliest known recipe for a fool was recorded in the cookbook Forme of Cury, which was written in 1390. This recipe calls for boiled eggs, cream, and sugar.
Fools were originally made with cream and eggs, but over time, the recipes have evolved to include different ingredients. For example, some recipes call for fruit, while others add spices or even chocolate.
The word "fool" comes from the Old French word "fouler," which means "to crush." This likely refers to the fact that the original recipes called for the ingredients to be crushed together.
