Homemade Whipping Cream

2 cups - Heavy Whipping Cream
3 tablespoons-Super Fine Sugar
1/2 teaspoon -Real Vanilla Extract
Cream of Tarter (optional)

Place your mixing bowl and whip in freezer for 30 minutes before whipping cream.

When bowl and whip is chilled add whipping cream to bowl and start to whip. Start out at a low speed and gradually speed it up. Once you see soft peaks start to form, you can add sugar (blend if with cream of tarter if you prefer) and vanilla and continue beating until peaks form and will hold pattern cream.

Always keep cream in refrigeration until it is to be used.
