I recently had whipped cream and strawberries at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. THIS is that good. I increaed the portion to 1 pint of heavy cream, 3 tb of sugar and 3/4 tsp of vanilla extract.
The freezing of the mixing bowl and the mixer tools makes this ready in 4 minutes!
Wonderful! These whipped up much quicker than I expected. Using a hand-held electric beater, it took maybe 4 minutes altogether. I added about 1/2 a cup of confectioner's sugar though. And I added 2 tbsp of vanilla pudding mix to keep the cream from weeping/melting for a week.
I made a this in my kitchenmaid stand mixer, started on low and then just let it go! I used it as cream puff filling - much lighter than custard - and so good. I'm thinking no more store bought whipped topping! Thanks.
Exactly the way my mother taught me -- except for the part about refrigerating in a strainer so it doesn't get watery. All these years, she and I scurried around madly at the last instant whipping cream for holiday desserts. Thanks for the great make-ahead tip!!
Great instructions! Chilling the bowl and beaters must have been the trick because this whipped right up even though I only had a little over a cup of heavy cream and used evaporated skim milk to make up the difference. I did use more sugar - I know it is bad for us, but . . . It tastes perfect!
Simply wonderful! I'd never made whipped cream before, but this gave me the confidence to do it. The instructions were exactly what I needed and a dollop of cream was the perfect accompaniment to Strawberry Strawberry Pie from THE REALLY GOOD FOOD COOK BOOK. I used 2 Tbs of sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla. It did take longer than 30 seconds for my cream to get to stiff peaks, but this recipe is worth the extra time :)
I was drawn to the recipe because I liked chilling the bowl and beater with ice water before whipping the cream. The cream whipped up nicely and was delicious over Kona Banana Cream Pie. One comment, the whipping time for stiff peaks was a little longer for me than the 30 seconds indicated in the instructions.
I made dirt pudding for Halloween and since they don't have cool whip here in Australia, I made this to go in my cream cheese layer of the dirt pudding and it turned out absolutely perfect! Thank you!
Served with home made pumpkin pie. Yum!
Easy and SO good. Beats the frozen stuff hands down. I serve with pies and it *makes* the dessert.
