How to Make Whipped Cream
Canned whipped cream doesn't even compare to this simple and rewarding recipe.
- In a chilled mixing bowl, combine 1 cup whipping cream, 2 tablespoons sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
- Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form (tips curl).
- If desired, add one of the following with the vanilla: 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded citrus peel; 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder plus 1 tablespoon sugar; 2 tablespoons amaretto, coffee, or hazelnut liqueur; or 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger.
