Simple Saturday: Boozy Whipped Cream
It's post Thanksgiving and I bet most of us are already eating on leftovers (or leftovers of leftovers) from the big day.
Although a plate of goodies from a day or two ago can be just delightful, sometimes you want to give your dishes new life and spice it up a little.
And that's where this boozy whipped cream comes in. For when that slice of pie is looking a little sad and you want to give your guests something to talk about.
Spiking your whipped cream really couldn't be easier, you just need to whip heavy whipping cream in a stand mixer with the whisk attachment (or with a hand beater) on high until it starts to form peaks, then add in a splash of vanilla, a dusting of powdered sugar and a teaspoon or two of your favorite booze, and whip to peak perfection.
To go with our Jamaican Pumpkin Pie (which was amazing) for Thanksgiving we added in a touch of Kraken Black Spiced Rum to our cream. It gave it a nice warmth and spicy punch, but the sky is the limit for what liquor or liqueur you can use.
