Whipped Cream

Whipped Cream is a childhood (and adult) delight!

Making your own whipped cream doesn't take very long and it is one of the simple is joys of life...forget all the bought stuff - THIS is a treat for everyone, plus it eliminates some of the unnecessary ingredients used in the prepackaged stuff, slow down this week, make it and dig in!!!!

Kids I know you will have fun making this one, go ahead and lick the spoon!! I know I did!

Whipped Cream

Heavy cream or light cream

Recipe depends on how much you want to make..I would say 1 cup of cream to 1 TBS of sugar...just depends on what you are serving it with and how sweet you want it.

Those of you new to cooking or under 10, grab a Cooking Buddy to help you along.

Place chilled cream in your mixing bowl and mix on med-high speed until the cream begins to get firm, add in sugar and continue until nice and thick and peaks hold their place - all told this takes about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.

You can add a bit of vanilla, strawberry or lemon extract...whatever you want to give it additional flavor or color.

This is best the day you make it. You can also save it for the following day just be sure to tightly cover it with plastic wrap.

Happy Cooking!
