Ingredients1 h 18 m servings 646
- Place raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries in a bowl. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, and 1/4 cup sugar. Stir until sugar is mixed with fruit and juices begin to form. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
- Place heavy cream and creme fraiche in a cold bowl. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk until mixture has soft peaks and sharp lines, 5 to 8 minutes.
- Place some cookie crumbs in the bottom of each serving dish. Spoon in some of the fruit and a layer of whipped cream. Repeat layers, ending with a sprinkle of cookie crumbs.
- Cook's Note:
- You can substitute plain yogurt or sour cream for the crème fraiche but, if you do, wait until the whipping cream is almost completely whipped before adding.

Oh my gosh, this was such a delicious and easy dessert. It took no time to make and everyone loved it. I will definitely do this again.

This was a fantastic dessert! I couldn't find creme fraiche so I substituted full-fat plain greek yogurt. It was great! I served it when having company and got great reviews! I'll make it again!
I made it just like the recipe called for. It was fantastic. My wife and Daughter loved it.
