Whipped Cream Swirls

I LOVE coffee. I'm not a five-cups-a-day coffee drinker, but I absolutely need a cup in the morning to start my day. A friend shared with me this little trick to give a cup of coffee a quick (and pretty) dollop of cream! Takes a little prep work, but it's quick in the morning!

You'll need:
1 pint heavy whipping cream
3 Tbsp. powderd sugar (more or less to taste)
1 tsp. vanilla

Just blend all the ingredients together in a large bowl until soft peaks begin to form. I like to place the bowl in the sink while I blend so the cream doesn't splash everywhere.

Spoon the whipped cream into a pastry bag and pipe into little swirls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Place the baking sheets in the freezer for at least an hour.

Once the swirls are frozen, you can layer them in a container to take up less space in the freezer.

Just place one in your cup of coffee in the morning!

 Or two...

And I like to sprinkle on some cinnamon-sugar, too.
