Bourbon Whipped Cream
This recipe adds the smoky sweetness of bourbon to rich whipped cream for a special finishing touch to any dessert.
Why This Recipe Works
Chilling the bowl and the beaters as well as the cream provided extra insurance that the cream stayed cold enough to remain firm. It was important not to overwhip our Bourbon Whipped Cream. If we whipped the cream too long, it curdled and separated—or turned to butter.
For longer storage, we found that placing the whipped cream in a wire-mesh strainer set over a mixing bowl works best. This allows any seepage to drip away from the whipped cream.
