I originally created this Lemon Whipped Cream as a compliment to Mary Randolph’s Sweet Potato Pie, but it was so utterly delicious and versatile that I had to share the recipe separately.
This whipped cream is a touch sweeter than my standard whipped cream to balance the lemon zest.
I love words and there is something about finding just the right words to describe a feeling, sensation or taste that makes me sublimely happy. [I am fully aware that this is odd.] The word “special” kept popping in my head as I tried to come up with words to describe just how delicious this topping is!
I initially brushed it off as too generic to be an appropriate descriptor, but the New Oxford American Dictionary defines special as “better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual; exceptionally good.” And that is exactly what this Lemon Whipped Cream is: exceptionally good.
Possibly my favorite thing about Whipped Cream is that it is fantastically easy to whip up (pun semi-intended, part of me is cringing)!
Do you see that beautiful dollop on the Sweet Potato Pie there? Adorable right?
And soooo yummy.
