Basic Whipped Cream
- Active Time 5m
- Total Time 5m
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/4 cup sugar, or to taste
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Add the cream, and whip quickly with a wire whisk until the cream is slightly thickened. Now add the sugar and any flavorings. Continue to whip until cream forms soft peaks. Don't whip beyond the soft-peak stage, because the cream will get stiff and curdle. Whipped cream made with good-quality cream should last 24 hours.
