Ingredients

  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Directions

  1. In a deep mixing bowl, beat 1 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form.

  2. Sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar over cream; beat until soft peaks return. Do not overbeat. Makes about 2 cups.

Cook's Note

Make sure the cream is very cold; if you have time, chill the whisk (or beaters) and bowl in the freezer for about 15 minutes. This will help the cream whip quickly and will increase its volume.
