Here's how to make homemade whipped cream like a pro. To make whipped cream, add heavy whipping cream to a chilled stainless steel bowl. (To chill the bowl, place it in the freezer for about 15 minutes.)   Cream doubles when it’s whipped, so if your recipe calls for 2 cups of whipped cream, use 1 cup of heavy cream. Beat at high speed, just until soft peaks form.  If you overbeat, it will turn into butter.  Use the whipped cream as a topping for fresh use, or in any recipe that called for whipped cream.   Get the Recipe: Eggnog Pie
