Whipped Cream

We're going back to basics with this easy whipped cream recipe. You could always use a frozen whipped topping, but why? Making your own whipped cream is so easy and tastes soooo much better!

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  1. Place a large (preferably metal--but only if you have it) mixing bowl and electric mixer beaters in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  2. Pour the cream into the chilled bowl and beat with an electric mixer on high speed until the cream is thickened, about 1 1/2 minutes.
  3. Stop beating and add the sugar and vanilla. Beat on high speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 to 2 minutes.
