Vanilla Whipped Cream


Thick, heavenly, and quick homemade whipped cream. The lemon adds a hint of light citrus, the vanilla warms and enriches the typically too-sugary treat. By adding these 2 ingredients, I cut the sugar in half!n Great for French toast, fruit dip, and desserts, or as a base for more elaborate recipes that use cream.
