All it takes is a bowl and a whisk (or electric mixer) and a few minutes of your time. Then dollop on a piece of pie, spoon onto shortcakes, or layer in parfaits.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
In a deep mixing bowl, beat 1 cup heavy cream until soft peaks form.
Sprinkle 1 to 2 tablespoons granulated sugar over cream; beat until soft peaks return. Do not overbeat. Makes about 2 cups.
