perfect whipped cream

2009-11-23-WhippedCream

i could have posted this recipe in the “cooking tips” section, it being such a simple & common kitchen basic. but this is the best whipped cream i have made and, like the reason for my starting this blog, i want to shout it from the rooftops. dance about it. make sure you all know about it, make it, and keep the recipe in your back pocket for every time you need to make whipped cream.

or if you’ve just had a rough day and need a little light, fluffy, sweet love.

perfect whipped cream

ingredients

2 cups cold heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup powdered sugar

1/4 tsp vanilla

directions

pour heavy whipping cream and vanilla into a large, super cold bowl** (or the bowl of a stand mixer). beat on high for about 45 seconds. add the powdered sugar. continue beating the mixture until stiff peaks form.

use immediately for all your whipped cream needs… on top of these waffles, in hot chocolate, as a topping for this sweet potato tart or these lovely pumpkin bourbon milkshakes. or on a spoon. or let’s be honest.. just take the bowl to the table and have at it.

**about 20-30 minuted before i am going to make whipped cream, i put my beaters and my large  metal bowl into the fridge to chill so that it’s cold when it’s time to beat – makes for much better results.**
