Whipped Cream (Crème Chantilly)

1 cup whipping cream, chilled
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Using an electric mixer or whisk, beat the cream until it mounds slightly. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until soft peaks form. Over beating will cause the whipping cream to turn to butter.

Cinnamon or liqueurs, such as Grand Marnier or framboise, may be added for a more complex flavor.
