Cool Whip has nothing on this whipped cream!
Makes 2 cups whipped cream
1/2 pint or 1 c. heavy whipping cream, COLD
2 Tbs. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Place metal mixing bowl and beaters in freezer for 10 minutes. Once chilled, whip heavy cream on medium high speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar and vanilla. Beat further until stiff peaks form. Do not overbeat!
