Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp vanilla, to taste
  • 1/2 Tbsp sugar, to taste

Equipment

  • Handheld Mixer

Directions

  1. Mix the ingredients together and beat on high using a hand-held mixer or a KitchenAid mixer with the whisk attachment. It will take several minutes for the liquid cream to transform into stiff peaks.
  2. If you beat the whipping cream until it is too stiff you can add more cream and continue beating.

Notes

  • Leftover whipped cream often starts to separate and lose its form. Simply add more cream (if need be) and whip it again.
