A good Chantilly cream recipe is essential to every French kitchen. Rich whipped cream infused with vanilla extract is a classic embellishment to French pastry, Génoise cakes, and tarts.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

How to Make It

In a large mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla extract together on high speed until soft peaks form in the mixture. Chill any unused Chantilly cream.

Makes enough cream for one average-size cake or pastry recipe.
