Found at All Recipes, this was simple, not too sweet and easy. My kids’ eyes widened as they watched the creamy stuff turn to fluffy cream, which was cool; I remember watching my Grams whip this stuff up with the hand held beater and wanting so badly to try it myself, then giving up when my small arms were too tired to keep it going till the peaks formed.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar
- In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, cream will then become lumpy and butter-like.
