Recipe: Maple Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream

I use this simple and delicious Maple Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream in my morning coffee and on ice cream, pie and anything I can think of!

makes 3 1/2 cups

2 cups cold whipping cream
1/4 – 1/3 cup pure maple syrup (sweeten to taste)
1 vanilla bean or 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Chill the bowl and whisk of a stand mixer.
If using the vanilla bean paste see notes.
If using the vanilla bean: Pour the cream into a medium bowl. Scrape the vanilla bean seeds into the cream and whisk together. Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
Pour the cream through a fine mesh sieve into the chilled bowl of the stand mixer.
Whisk the cream on medium-low for a few minutes until it starts to thicken. Add the maple syrup.
Increase the speed to medium high and continue to whisk until the cream thickens to your liking.
Use immediately or refrigerate and use within a few hours. (If you made the cream very thick it will last a few days.)

If using the vanilla bean paste you can cut right to whisking the cream. Simple add the vanilla when you add the maple syrup. This will cut out lots of time if you are in a hurry!

Recipe: Crockpot Gingerbread Lattes

Cozy and cuddle up by the fire with these delicious Crockpot Gingerbread Lattes. Simple to make at home and no need to run to the local coffee shop!

4 lattes

4 cups milk (2% or lower)
1/2 cup coconut or brown sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup strong black coffee
whipped cream for topping
gingerbread cookie for garnish
optional: splash of bourbon or rum

t’s best to use a 4 quart crock pot, you could use as small as a 2 quart.
Pour milk into your crock pot, and whisk in the dried spices. Do not add the coffee. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, or high for 1-2.
Watch the milk carefully so it does not come to a boil (it can curdle & boil over) if you do. It should be very hot, but not bubbling. Reduce heat if it boils.
Divide the coffee into coffee mugs. Garnish with whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon & a gingerbread cookie.
Add a splash of bourbon or rum to lattes before you add the whipped cream, if desired.
