Easy and perfect this one is. Thank you Betty Crocker!
Think ahead - place your mixing bowl in the freezer with your mixer's beaters. When frosty, you may begin.
For 1 cup of whipped cream:
Beat 1/2 cup whipping (heavy) cream and 2 tablespoons granulated sugar with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form.
If they're lazy peaks, keep going. When they stick around, you're done. Stop. If you keep going you'll find yourself in butterland.
