Whipped Cream

1 C whipping cream
6 Tbsn sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla

Put cream in a bowl (a cold bowl will help it whip faster) and whip cream with beaters or a Kitchenaid if you happen to have one. You can even use a good old fashioned whisk if you're wanting to feel quaint. When the cream starts to hold peaks, add the sugar and vanilla and beat until it's the desired stiffness.

If you're a creative cook, you can go bonkers with this recipe. You can add a dash of nutmeg, cinnamon, or any other spice; or you can use other extracts or flavoring (such as almond extract) in place of the vanilla.
