Homemade Whipped Cream

I must admit, buying those tubs of pre made whipped topping is just too easy, but have you seen what's in them?  It contains hydronated oil, high fructose corn syrup and etc....  A long time ago my mother taught me how to make whipped cream, but I've changed it up a bit.

My mother just whipped cream and added a little table sugar.

How I make it:

2 cups heavy whipping cream
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
Teaspoon vanilla

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!
