Fresh Whipped Cream- A Delicious Treat
The Teacher's Table
When I was growing up, my mom would always have a huge bowl homemade whipped cream with a little powdered sugar and lots of vanilla in the refrigerator during the holidays. It was supposed to go on the pies, but my dad would always sneak a heaping scoop of it for his coffee. I have adopted that tradition myself. The fresh cream is easy to whip up and makes everything during the holidays more special.
This simple whipped cream can easily be modified as well. It is way better than the stuff you can get in a can. Give it a try! Get the original recipe here. Freshly Whipped Cream
Fluffy for days!
Do you need want the cream to stay whipped for a few days? Add in 1 teaspoon of unflavored gelatin dissolved into 2 to 3 teaspoons of warm water. Then mix it into the cream. It will stay fluffy for a few days in the fridge and can even be used for frosting on cakes.
Too much cream? Is that even possible?!?!
Did you make too much whipped cream? Dollop it onto a cookie sheet with waxed paper and pop it into the freezer. When it hardens, place the dollops into a freezer bag. When you want a little treat for hot chocolate or coffee, place the frozen dollop into your drink.
Twists on traditional whipped cream:
Swap our vanilla for almond extract or mint extract.
Instead of vanilla, add in a shot of bourbon. This is awesome on pecan pie.
Add a few tablespoons of maple syrup and skip on the vanilla and sugar. Try this on pumpkin pie, French toast, pancakes, or waffles.
Turn simple whipped cream into a complete dessert.
Add a few tablespoons of Nutella and serve with berries for a quick chocolate mousse.
Add a few tablespoons of lemon curd and serve with berries for a summer treat. This is great with angel food cake too.
