Whipped Cream

Total Time: 20 minutes

Making the homemade whipped cream for holidays has been my job since I was a child.  It’s so simple to make and tastes so amazing.  It’s a wonderful cake filling as well!


  • 1 cup heavy cream (cold)
  • 2 tablespoons whipped or block cream cheese
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Add all the ingredients to a large bowl or stand mixer and beat with whisk attachment for about 5-10 minutes until the cream is whipped.  Don’t over mix or you’ll end up with butter! 
  2. Overtime I’ve taken to adding a small amount of cream cheese to my whipped cream to give it a little more form.  This is helpful if you want to pipe your whipped cream into any desserts. Plus it’s tasty; but if you wish – you can exclude the cream cheese and still have an amazing whipped cream.
