Whipped Cream Recipe

One of my favorite dessert treats is whipped cream. Yum! I could eat it straight, especially if it’s frozen. Here is my recipe:

1 cup whipping cream
3 tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Set up your mixer and measure out the sugar and vanilla. (Keep the whipping cream as cold as possible until you are ready to make it.) Whip the cream until it starts to get thick; be patient, this could take minutes. When it thickens, add the sugar and vanilla, and mix a bit more to stir. Don’t keep mixing  or you’ll end up with something like butter! Refrigerate; lasts about a week (if you can manage to not eat it all). Freezes great, too!

And remember: you can whip cream but you won’t get whipped cream unless you start with whipping cream.
