Homemade Whipped Cream
I've never made whipped cream from scratch before and I'll admit that I was a little skeptical about the process. I really didn't think that beating a liquid could magically turn it into a semi-solid, but it's true! And I did it by hand without an electric beater (aka, Andrew and I took turns. It's tiring on the arm!). This was not by choice though. I promptly bought the cheapest beater I could find at Target afterward. I know it will be well worth the investment.
Working really hard to make soft, foamy peaks. [Still skeptical at this point]
So proud of the product!
1/2 pt. whipping cream
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
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. Refrigerate.
