homemade whipped cream Homemade whipped cream is so decadent and rich, but it's also just about the easiest thing you can imagine to make. My step-by-step directions (with pictures) will show you how.

The trick to making whipped cream is to use a really cold bowl and cold electric mixer (you don't have to use an electric mixer, but it is so much easier and faster). I put the bowl and beaters in the freezer for 15 minutes to a half hour to cool them off. Of course, you also have to be sure to use heavy cream or whipping cream. It won't work with regular milk, because there isn't enough fat.

Use your whipped cream as a topping for pumpkin pie, apple pie or any of your favorite desserts.
