The people in my house are crazy about some whipped cream.  There is nothing that a dollop won’t make better.  And it’s one of those things that is so easy to make if you have a mixer.

I use my stand mixer so that I can set the magic in motion while keeping my hands free to complete other tasks, like get the coffee brewing or take a cake out of the oven.  It’s as easy as pouring some whipping cream into the bowl and turning the mixer on.  Once the cream begins to thicken, slowly add your confectioner’s sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.  When your cream starts to form stiff peaks or holds together when you pull out your mixer’s beaters or whisk, then you’ve got yourself one scrumptious whipped topping!

Oftentimes, we fear that going the extra mile will be harder than we want to take on.  But in the case of making your home and table special, I found the little things that people like most and make them feel most welcome are almost always the easiest.  I think you’ll find that true too…  especially when you have recipes like this cinnamon whipped cream up your sleeve!
