Homemade whipped cream is one of those dishes that I've made so many times that I don't consider it a recipe. Once you know the basic proportions, you can get creative and flavor the whipped cream with everything from extracts to liqueurs to spices. Experimenting with different kinds of sugar will also result in varied texture and flavor. The most important thing to remember when whipping cream is to use very cold heavy cream. If you have time, place the mixing bowl and mixers in the freezer before whipping, this will ensure that the cream forms even stiff peaks. Don't overmix, the whipped cream will become grainy, or worse, turn into butter. Learn an easy method you'll use over and over again here.
