Whipped Cream Recipe
Fresh whipped cream is one of life's great pleasures. And once you find out how easy it is to make at home, you'll never go back to the canned stuff again. When it comes to picking the best whipped cream ingredients, we found that organic heavy cream whipped lighter and fluffier and tasted more pure than conventional cream. Check labels and choose cartons that contain only cream (some have added stabilizers). When you're ready to whip, start with just 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar for every 2 cups of cream. You can always add more if you want it sweeter. Add a splash of vanilla (or bourbon or amaretto) for extra flavor then serve over chocolate ice cream, atop a custardy pie or dolloped on top of fresh berries.
