Sweet Almond Whipped Cream

About a month ago, Mr. Young and I went on a little get a way to Pine Grove Park Bed and Breakfast Guest House.
Everyone morning we would get a quiet knock on our front door.  Out on the front porch would be a beautiful, wooden picnic basket.  Inside was a delicious breakfast.  These breakfasts were incredible and always included desserts.  Both desserts had real whipped cream that was flavored with almond.
I love almond!  I'm not sure why I never thought about flavoring my whip cream with almond?  I mean I have flavored it with vanilla, chocolate, and even liquors.  It never crossed my mind to flavor it with almond.  Well last week Mr. Young had a birthday and we had angel food cake with strawberries, and when we have angel food cake we have whipped cream.  I decided that this time I would flavor it with  almond extract.  Everyone loved it, and I think it will become the new regular around here.  If you love almond flavor, please give this a try.

Sweet Almond Whipped Cream

1 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon powdered sugar 
1/2 -1 teaspoon almond extract (this depends on how strong you want the almond flavor to be)

Place all of the ingredients in a large, chilled mixing bowl.  Start out on low speed and gradually increase to high and whip until stiff peaks form.  Use immediately.
