Whipped cream can be flavored with vanilla or else try coffee, chocolate, orange zest or liqueur.
1 quart of heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1. Chill bowl and whipping attachment for one-half hour before making. Add heavy cream and sugar to the bowl and start with a stir until cream and sugar begin to mix, about 30 to 60 seconds.
2. After mixing for about a minute, add pure vanilla extract, and increase speed.
3. Watch as the cream thickens and be sure to stop when you can easily spoon out the cream. (If you continue whipping too long it will turn to a buttery substance.)
