My mother just whipped cream and added a little table sugar.
How I make it:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
Keep your cream as cold as you can, whip it with a whisk until peaks start to develop. The lightly whisk in the sugar and vanilla.
This homemade whipped cream is so good it can be eaten as a dessert, but if you add this to pies (even store bought) it will make you look like a master chef!
