This recipe shows how to make basic whipped cream. For best results, make sure the whisk and bowl are ice cold.

Holland Cream (White Cream Filling)

Rating: 4.5 stars 71
This is the white cream filling used in Smear Faces, Cream Horns, etc. I have looked forever for the Holland cream recipe for donuts. I have never had any luck. I have worked on this recipe for a long time. I use this in my donuts at my cake shop.

Easy Custard Cake Filling

Rating: 4.5 stars 39
Use this delicious filling to fill cupcakes or your favorite layer cake. The microwave makes it fool-proof! Use different extracts to vary the flavor; almond and mint are both really good.

Better than the whipped cream that comes in the squirty canisters! Spread on crepes, fruits, pies or your favorite desserts.

Sweetened whipped cream filling. Use to fill cakes, pastries, and pies. Also can use extracts to flavor whipping cream. Gelatin must be warm when added to whipping cream. Recipe can be doubled.

I make this raspberry mousse every year when raspberries are in season. You want to use ripe and sweet berries. Adjust sugar amount accordingly.

Old English Cream Pie Filling

Rating: 4.5 stars 57
Makes excellent banana, coconut, or chocolate cream pie. This was given to me by a friend many years ago. For banana slice a layer of bananas in pie pan then fill half full with filling add more bananas then rest of filling. For chocolate, add 2 squares semi-sweet chocolate to hot milk and an additional 1/2 cup sugar. Good just to eat as pudding.

Lady Lock Filling II

Rating: 4 stars 10
This is a very simple cream filling. It can be frozen, and will not weep! I usually double the recipe for 1 batch of lady locks (approximately 120 cookies.) Use a pastry bag to fill cookies. You can freeze the cookies after filling.

Pastry Cream for Pies

Rating: 4.5 stars 33
A thick egg custard that has many uses. Spread this in a baked pie shell and cover with fresh fruit, pipe it into doughnuts, or mix it with whipped cream for eclairs or cream puffs.

Cheater No-Cook Pastry Cream

Rating: 3 stars 1
This fast version of a pastry cream is a useful hack to know if you like to make fancy French desserts without all the fuss! This consistency will work for any recipe where you need a cream that can stand up to layering or filling. If you need a cream that is less stiff, add more cream or milk one tablespoon at a time until you get the texture you need for your recipe.

Buddy's Maple Mascarpone Cream

An Italian favorite to serve with pandoro or panettone, or even on crepes, or to dip your cantucci biscotti, this mascarpone cream is inspired by "Elf", the movie. Instead of rum or brandy, this uses maple syrup for an extra boost in flavor. Buddy might put it on spaghetti, but I wouldn't advise it.

Lemon Pastry Cream

Easy lemon custard pastry cream for lemon tartlets.
Vanilla Whipped Cream
Rating: Unrated 1
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.
Mascarpone-Brandy Cream

Mascarpone cream is used in a lot of traditional Italian desserts, such as tiramisu, or it is served beside a slice of panettone at Christmas time. Try it in trifle or with a slice of sponge cake - it's divine!
