While store bought whip cream has the benefit of being “ready to go”, there are many who still enjoy homemade whip cream on pies and in hot chocolate.
1/2 pt. whipping cream
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Whip cream with mixer. Be careful not to overbeat or else will get too thick like butter. When it begins to thicken, add sugar and vanilla; stir. Refrigerate.
