Whipped cream is a must for many, many things. There is nothing better, or easier, then making it fresh. Next time you are going to grab that tub of cool whip or that can of spray on, just move down the aisle and grab a carton of whipping cream and whip up your own!
Heavy whipping cream (1 c will cover a pie)
Sugar (1 Tbs for every cup)
Put your whipping cream in a bowl and start beating. Put the mixer on high and let it roll. Soon, you'll see it thicken up and soft peaks will form. Once you have those, add 1 Tbs of sugar for every cup of whipping cream. Start beating away again. Soon, stiff peaks will form and you are ready to enjoy. Top off your favorite dessert, or just eat by the spoonful! :)
