How to keep whipped cream from weeping

Have you ever whipped a bowl of cream only to have it break or turn wet (weep)?  Stabilizing your whipped cream prevents the weeping.  It is so easy to do and takes just a few minutes more than regular whipped cream.

Stabilized Whipped Cream

1 1/2 t unflavored gelatin

1 1/2 oz water or your favorite liqueur

3 T sugar

2 c. heavy cream

Put the water (or liqueur) and unflavored gelatin in a small bowl to proof.  This will take about 2 minutes and you will know it is done when the gelatin has absorbed the water.

Then put in the microwave for 10 seconds at a time until dissolved – it will look like liquid.  Let cool.

Pour the heavy cream and sugar into the bowl of a mixer and whip until soft peaks form.  Pour the liquid gelatin into the soft whipped cream and continue to whip until medium peaks form.
