Recipe Notes

You can place a dollop of whipped cream on top if desired. To make homemade whipped cream: Take ¾ cup heavy whipping cream and 2-3 tablespoons powdered sugar, and place in a medium sized bowl. Using your hand mixer, whip until medium peaks form. There you have it, some yummy homemade whipped cream!
