Expert Tips

Whipping cream whips more quickly and gives more volume if both the cream and equipment are cold. Place the bowl and beaters in the freezer 15 minutes before using. Leave the whipping cream in the refrigerator until ready to whip.

Pie baking can be even easier when you use Pet-Ritz® frozen pie crusts. Find them in the freezer case with a precrimped edge, ready to use. The disposable pan makes clean up a snap.
