In my family there is usually a debate between the different types of frosting from the bakery, namely the sweet butter cream and the whipped kind, what some stores call "best cream". I personally like both and my preference usually depends on my mood or what the cream/frosting is on. For example, I like the really sweet traditional whoopie pie pilling in whoopie pies and cream horns. However, for napoleons I like a lighter whipped cream.
My problem is that I can never make this whipped "best cream" . I have tried a few recipes and it just never comes out right. So with fresh apple pie filling made and puff pastry in the freezer, I decided one to try something out. We have a container of whipped topping and confectioner sugar. Hmmmm .... mix them together and a 2 ingredient whipped "best cream" is born. It totally worked.
If you are not a fan of that really sweet frosting, you will love this.
Here is how:
Carefully Fold (do not use an electric mixer, you will "break" the whipped topping) 1 Cup of Confectioner Sugar into a bowl with one container of whipped topping ( 8 Oz) .
* If using the larger tub, start with 2 cups of confectioner sugar and follow below...
Gradually add more confectioner sugar until the consistency is thick, but spreadable.
Done. Simple. Add a touch of vanilla for more flavor!
Store in the refrigerator for up to one week
Use for cakes, cupcakes, napoleons, cream horns and more!
Peanut butter cream-
Using an electric mixer, cream 1 cup of peanut butter, 3 tablespoons room temperature butter and 1 tablespoon milk together until smooth. Add powdered sugar half at a time. Mix until combined. Carefully fold in whipped topping until smooth. Use in whoopie pies, on cakes and more!
