Correct me if I’m wrong here, okay? But when it comes down to it, there are very few things in this life that are not made better by a dollop of whipped cream. Am I right or am I right? We could just stop there, but I’m kind of in the habit of taking good things and elevating them to a whole new level. And that, my friends, is exactly what I did with this ridiculously easy homemade bourbon whipped cream.
On TV, most grandmas are stereotypical for making everything from scratch. My IRL (in real life) grandma is pretty much the opposite of that. You name the kitchen shortcut and that lady takes it. She has always loved to be outside and on the go; the kitchen is probably one of her least favorite places to waste, er, I mean, spend time. She spent many Thanksgivings with us at our home in Arizona and her annual contribution to the meal was always a pumpkin pie. From Costco. In her defense, Costco does make a decent pumpkin pie. Topped with a dollop of this easy homemade bourbon whipped cream, though, that store-bought pumpkin pie gets a gourmet makeover.
I don’t mind telling you that we pretty much keep a constant supply of this stuff in our fridge from about mid-September through early March. Besides being really simple to make, it is such a versatile way to add homemade flavor to just about anything you top with it. We use it on ice cream, crisps and cobblers, waffles and even on our chai lattes.
Here’s the deal: I’ve titled this recipe “easy homemade bourbon whipped cream” for good reason. Like, it’s really, really easy. So easy that there really is no excuse for you not to be like me and keep a constant supply of it in your fridge. Go ye therefore and whip a batch up for ye self. Thank me later.
