A wickedly indulgent topping for any dessert you desire. You can add a dash of cinnamon or flavoring extract to complement your dessert for a lil' extra decadence. From "The Cooks Book, Concise Edition".
Place all the ingredients in a deep mixing bowl and set the bowl over a larger bowl filled with ice.
Whisk together until the mixture will hold soft, smooth peaks and is the consistency of whipped heavy cream. (This makes 2 cups of country cream. It can be kept, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3–4 days.).
