Recipe For Basic Whipped Cream
The Basics: Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream
Homemade whipped cream is more of a technique than a recipe. Two tricks to always keep in mind: make sure the bowl and the cream are ice-cold and avoid overmixing at all costs. You'll know you've gone too far if the whipped cream appears grainy, thick, and buttery. You're looking for soft, fluffy peaks that can easily be dolloped. Keep an eye on the whipped cream at all times, because it comes together faster than you think. Once you've made whipped cream, serve it with berries, use it to top pies, add it to an ice cream sundae, or use it as frosting for a cake. The sky's the limit!
