  1. Split vanilla bean lengthwise with the tip of a sharp knife. Holding the pod open, scrape seeds from each half using the flat side of the knife. Transfer seeds to a large bowl; discard pod.
  2. Pour heavy cream over vanilla seeds. Add sugar and vanilla extract. Whip with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For almond Chantilly cream, use 1/2 teaspoon almond extract instead of vanilla extract.
  • Use regular white sugar instead of superfine sugar if desired.
  • If you over-whip the cream and it becomes stiff, just add a bit more heavy whipping cream and whip softly by hand to reconstitute. You ain't makin' butter... rather a sweet cream.

I made this because I was wanting something for the Thanksgiving bread pudding--I have now used up all of it in coffee, on pudding, and just eating it out of the bowl and have to make more. Deli...

I used one my own vanilla beans that I grew and my vanilla extract. This recipe is easy and yummy! Used regular white sugar instead of super fine. It was great!

I skipped the vanilla & added Grand instead. Loved it over strawberries.

And for a little extra touch add 2 generous table spoons of Amaretto instead of the flavored extract. YUM YUM!!
