Recipe Comments & Reviews

I saw another version of this recipe where instead of using regular table suger it called for confectioners sugar.
Very good. I have tried several different ways, this is the best.
I just tested out a few homemade whipped cream recipes for my blog and this won. It had the best flavor and really stands up nicely on my Strawberry Shortcake.
awesome sweet whipped topping . just the right amount of swetness and vanilla. definately a keeper!!!
I started using this recipe several years ago when I brownie recipe I tried called for a small amount of heavy whipping cream.

Sweetened just right, it goes with just about any dessert I can think of!
