Coffee Scented Whipped Cream

There’s nothing better than homemade whipped cream for dipping fruit or topping holiday pies. Our recipe utilizes our coffee bitters for an additional hint of flavor that will have your guests asking for seconds.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or in a large mixing bowl if you’re using a hand-held mixer, combine cream, powdered sugar and bitters. Mix, starting at low speed, gradually increasing to medium-high until stiff peaks have formed. Yields approximately 2 cups of whipped cream.

Helpful Tip: Freeze your mixing bowl and beaters for 10-15 minutes prior to mixing. The chill will create stiffer peaks and help the finished cream stay set.
