My favorite desserts when I was a child were “Natillas”, Cheesecakes and Strawberries and Cream. I guess taste buds are genetic because my son loves cheesecake and my daughter loves strawberries with whipped cream. Ja! A few weekends ago my daughter became fixed on having strawberries with whipped cream as a snack, so we washed and halved fresh strawberries I had in the fridge and some heavy cream and sugar and made homemade whipped cream. I rarely buy canned whipped cream and try to make it fresh whenever I need it. Its so easy and absolutely delicious!
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp amaretto liquor
1. Beat heavy cream until it becomes a bit thick. Add sugar and liquor. Continue to beat until soft peaks form.
2. Serve over fruit, scones or dessert. You may also place in a piping bag to decorate dessert.
