Schlag, or Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoon of confectioner's sugar
Put cold heavy cream, vanilla and sugar in mixing bowl.
With stand mixer, use the whisk attachment and, start out slowly otherwise you have cream all over your kitchen.
It's actually very easy and takes about 2.5 seconds if you use an immersion blender with a whisk attachment.
As the cream thickens, turn the speed up. As it gets foamier, start checking for a soft peak, which is what you want. The peak should bend over at the top when you remove the whisk. As it gets close, slow down, because if it goes too far, it will clump and separate (essentially become butter).
