Homemade Whipped Cream is not that difficult, especially if you have a Stand Mixer like my KitchenAid. And it is so superior to Cool Whip, please try making it! You will be thrilled with the outcome.
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract ro other flavoring of choice
3 tablespoons of sweetener (prefer confectioners sugar as it makes a smoother product but you can use granular sugar)
Place chilled cream and vanilla extract in a chilled bowl.
Attach chilled wire whisk and bowl to mixer.
Turn mixer to Speed 8 and whip until cream begins to thicken.
Continuing on Speed 8, gradually add sweetener until mixed well and cream is forming peaks, CAUTION: Do not over-whip as it will turn the cream to butter.
