"Saved my already-made whipped cream with the idea of vanilla essence. Had a try with other essences... didn't work out so nicely..;)"

"Perfect! Just the right amount of sweetness. Used a 4 cup glass pyrex measuring cup and a hand mixer. Just the right size. Not only great on pie but spooned onto a big bowl of fresh berries!"

"This recipe is so simple and delicious. I have tried different extracts for different flavor whipped cream. They have all turned out great. I will be making this recipe many more times. I used this for homemade hot chocolate and it was awesome!"
