Whipping Cream

Whipping cream is a type of cream that can be whipped to a light, fluffy texture. When whipping cream is beaten with a whisk or electric mixer, it incorporates air bubbles that allow it to dramatically increase in volume. The result is a thick, creamy foam that can be used to top desserts like pies, cakes, hot chocolate, milkshakes, and more. It typically contains 30-40% milk fat, giving it a rich taste and creamy texture. Look for heavy whipping cream or heavy cream on ingredient labels. Refrigerate whipping cream and chill the bowl and beaters before whipping for best results. Whipping cream whips best when it's cold. Add sugar or vanilla to sweeten if desired. Use it create pillowy dollops of sweetness on your favorite treats.
