Made for More Than Sauerkraut and Dumplings in the German Forum. I used real whipping cream and pure vanilla, and will be adding Kirschwasser for Mia's Blushing Maid German Dessert. Wonderful! Thank you, Celticevergreen, for sharing your recipe with us for 'real' German Schlagsahne.

Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! We don't get non dairy toppings here in the UK so I just used whipped cream with the icing sugar & vanilla essence - just what I needed for my apfel kuchen! Thanks :)
