Making whipped cream ~ I LOVE whipped cream, and after I discovered it was so easy to make at home, I’m making it all the time. The real thing is by far the best and only takes a few minutes to prepare. So forget your non-dairy, petroleum crap whip. Go homemade. You won’t regret it.
- pour 1 pint of whipping cream into CHILLED bowl
- beat or whisk until cream begins to stiffen (round peaks)
- add 4-6 tablespoons of confectioners sugar
- add teaspoon of vanilla
- continue whisking/beating until stiff peaks develop (avoid over beating)
