Chantilly Creme for Fresh Fruit Desserts

A simple Chantilly Creme can be added to many cakes and pastries, and it certainly beats artificial whipped toppings for flavor, elegance, and real food appeal. It's perfect, too, as a topping for the delicious local strawberries we have on sale this week!

1 pint heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or scrape the inside of a single vanilla bean)

2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar


Add ice and water to a large mixing bowl.

Place a medium sized bowl inside the large bowl. Add cream and vanilla extract. Using a whisk or hand mixer, start beating the cream and then add confectioner’s sugar. Whip until the mixture holds a stiff peak.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with fresh berries, fruit tarts, berry pies or chocolate cake and brownies.

Tip: If using a hand mixer rather than a whisk, start by beating the cream on slow speed. As the cream thickens you can start mixing faster.
