Holiday Treats Day 11: Vanilla Bean Cream

So here is a filler recipe... making cream puffs? Want to dollop on pumpkin, pecan, or apple pie? making a Yule Log? Here is a wonderful recipe to make you smile!

2 Cups of Heavy whipping cream, 35% or better.
1 softened vanilla Bean, split
3 TBS of Sugar
1 tsp vanilla

In a large stainless, not aluminum bowl (it will change the flavor) combine sugar and cream. Scrape vanilla seeds into cream. Place Bean in cream. Let sit overnight in fridge, covered!

Let cream come to room temperature. Remove bean and add vanilla. With an electric mixer, blend on medium high speed until peaks are formed and cream is stiff. Don't over mix... you don't want butter!

Serve it! Love it! Lick it!
