Whipping Cream

We all know that with holiday cooking and baking comes all things sweet and delicious. Whipped cream is never far form either of these. It is one the most easiest and versatile desserts. Normally used as just a garnish or accent to your favorite pies or drink, but it can also be the main ingredient to many dessert salads. If you appreciate (most) things old school you probally make your own already. If not, get ready to never look down a can of Redi Whip again. Making home made whipped cream couldn't be easier. And it;s probally faster than having to drive down to the store to get some. Here is my guide to simple, easy, fast, home made whipped cream.

Three simple ingredients is all you need. Heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, vanilla extract.

Pour the heavy cream in a wide, deep, round bowl. Add about a tbls. of powdered sugar and a cap full of vanilla extract.

                                          {A heaping spoonful of powdered sugar works great}

Take your electric mixer, on high, and whip the cream until it starts to get rich and thick, about 5-7 minutes.  As your cream gets thicker taste it to determine if you need more powdered sugar or vanilla. Go slow when doing this, you can always add but you can't take out.

And voila, home made whipped cream perfect for you pumpkin pie. ( insert your favorite pie:)
