Homemade Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is so simple to make.  It is one of those rare recipes where the majority of the recipe is located in the name.   It’s really just as simple as whipping cream.  So why do so many people buy premade whipped cream?  Why shell out extra money for an inferior product when the real thing is so easy to make?

This is a basic recipe for making whipped cream.  It’s great for any of your whipped cream applications, but it will really shine when you put it on top of your pies this Thanksgiving.  So, we encourage you to give up the can and tub this year.  Instead, pick up a pint of whipping cream and impress everyone.
