FRESH WHIPPED CREAM

 

Fresh Whipped Cream

1cup heavy or whipping cream -- cold
2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Beat the cream in a large chilled mixing bowl until it starts to thicken. Gradually add the sugar and vanilla (if using) while continuing to beat. The whipped cream is ready when it holds a stiff peak. Be sure not to overbeat or you'll have butter. Makes 1 pint.
