Smile Whipped Cream???

Does anyone make their own whipped cream? If so, with what and how???? I would like to get away from the store bought kind and start making my own. I would love any ideas or recipes for some....

MMM!!! Heavy whipping cream and either powdered or regular sugar...and just beat it until it gets thick like the stuff you buy. Great on homemade hot chocolate!!!

Thats how I do mine. But sometimes I add just a teaspoon of vanilla.

yep, I do the same thing - just whip heavy cream up with a little vanilla and powdered sugar - but if the dessert or whatever I am using it for is super sweet sometimes I don't even add the sugar - it still tastes great!

I used to used my kitchenaid mixer to make it but I recently discovered it is MUCH faster with my hand mixer!

a tsp. of cream of tarter will make it firmer if you are decorating a pie or something with it...but not necessary. Now the hot cocoa i am drinking seems inadequate...ha ha

I forgot to add if you have a Magic Bullet (which I do, and LOVE it!) it's so easy and quick!

Yeah, it's super easy, especially if you have an electric mixer. A little sugar to taste, and a teaspoon of vanilla are great. The higher the speed of the mixer, the faster it whips. I have accidently turned it to butter by walking away and leaving the mixer on for too long, so it's a good idea to scrape the sides while it's mixing.
It can be hand beaten too, but that takes a little more stamina. Use a whisk or balloon whisk if you have one. If you are stuck hand mixing it, it helps to have a bowl of ice or ice water to set the mixing bowl in. That helps it firm up faster, but is totally not required.

I do! It's the only kind I'll use now! Just buy heavy cream add a bit of white sugar and stick it in the magic blender! YUM! When I make it to serve with apple crisp in pumpkin pie I put some cinnamon in too!

When I first started this was the recipe I used, but now I wing it and have gotten used to less sugar.

Whipped Cream:
1 pint heavy cream
cup white sugar
