Makes about 1 1/2 cups whipped cream, enough to serve with a standard-size pie.
- 12 oz or larger glass jar with tight-fitting lid, chilled
- 1 cup (227g) very cold heavy cream (a.k.a, whipping cream)
- 3 Tbsp (21g) confectioners’ sugar
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract, or flavoring of your choice (Grand Marniere is very nice)
It’s never cool to show up at a dinner party empty-handed, but do you really want to bring the umpteenth pie or bottle of wine? Here’s a more creative answer to the question, What can I bring? Bring the whipped cream! Not just any whipped cream, but a fresh batch that you make, with love, at serving time in our Feggos Collection storage jars. Bring the jar and the ingredients to the party (be sure to stash them in the fridge once you get there), and after you’ve made and served the dazzling fluff, leave the jar and this recipe for your host. A perfect DIY gift!
In the jar, combine the very cold cream, confectioners’ sugar, and vanilla extract. Tightly secure the lid.
Shake the jar with everything you’ve got until the cream thickens and fluffs to a consistency you like. This generally takes about 2 minutes, more or less. Don’t expect to achieve the firm peaks you get with a whisk, though. Glass-jar whipped cream is softer, gentler topping. When dolloped onto a dessert, it will spread out and meld with the treat in a most delicious way.
