Whisper Creek® Buttercream Frosting

Whisper Creek Buttercream Frosting Recipe

Who doesn't remember the joy of licking the frosting off the beaters as a child? It's a shame folks don't make it from scratch anymore, as it's about as easy to make as toast! Let this simple recipe be your starting point and experiment with adding extracts like vanilla or almond, or sifting in cocoa powder or even instant coffee!

INGREDIENTS:

2 Sticks Real Butter, Softened to Room Temperature
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1/4 Cup Whisper Creek®

Cream the butter and powdered sugar together in a mixer until light and fluffy.
Add the Whisper Creek® and mix until combined.


Whisper Creek® Ice Cream

Whisper Creek Ice Cream RecipeEverybody screams for ice cream! This has never been more true than when you make it with Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream. Layered with almost two-dozen all-natural flavors, Whisper Creek is the one ingredient that adds complexity and dimension to almost any sweet treat.

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
6 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup Whisper Creek®

Combine the cream, milk, sugar, and salt in a large saucepan and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, over medium heat. Put the yolks in a metal or glass bowl and whisk lightly. When the cream mixture is starting to steam, whisk a cup or so, ¼ cup at a time, into the yolks to temper them. Once the eggs are tempered, slowly whisk them into the cream mixture. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat roughly 5 minutes, or until the cream mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Do NOT let this mixture come to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in the Whisper Creek and vanilla extract.

Chill the mixture in your refrigerator until completely cool. Process according to the instructions of your ice cream maker. Spoon ice cream out of ice cream maker and freeze for as long as you can, preferably overnight.


Whisper Creek® Cupcakes

Whisper Creek Cupcakes RecipeLayered with almost two-dozen all-natural flavors, Whisper Creek is that perfect secret ingredient for baked goods and desserts. These luscious little cupcakes are no exception, as the Whisper Creek adds subtle sweetness that will please everyone at the party.

INGREDIENTS:

Cupcakes
1 box white cake mix, substitute Whisper Creek® for water (plus add additional 1/4 cup)
¼ cup Whisper Creek® (optional)

Frosting
2 sticks butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup Whisper Creek®

Start by making the cupcakes according to cake mix directions, except substitute Whisper Creek for the water that is asked for with an additional 1/4 cup to compensate for the evaporation of alcohol. Bake the cupcakes and let cool before poking the tops with a fork to make small holes. Optional: brush the tops of the cupcakes with the ¼ cup Whisper Creek and allow to absorb before frosting.

To make the frosting, cream butter, powdered sugar and whisper creek together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Top the cupcakes with the frosting, serve and enjoy!

Note: while there will still be some alcohol in the frosting and a little that is brushed on to the cupcakes, it is a nominal amount. The alcohol in the batter will cook off while the cupcakes are baking.


Chocolate Icebox Cake with Whisper Creek®

Whisper Creek® Salted Caramel and Pecan Ice Cream

Recipe for Whisper Creek Salted Caramel and Pecan Ice CreamSalted caramel is that perfect blend of sweet and salty that makes folks go nuts! Add in some roasted pecans and the subtle flavoring of Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream and this ice cream is purely addictive!

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
6 egg yolks
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon pure almond extract
½ cup Whisper Creek®
½ cup roasted pecans, finely chopped

Start by making the caramel. Add the sugar to a completely dry saucepan and place over medium heat. Do not stir or touch the sugar, but watch it closely as it begins to melt. Once you see the sugar start to melt around the edges, stir it from outside in with a silicone spatula. Blend the sugar until it is fully combined and continue cooking as it darkens. Do not step away during this process, as the sugar can quickly go from tasty caramel to bitter and burnt. Once the sugar is a medium-brown color and smells strongly of caramel, remove from head and carefully add the cream, stirring constantly. Be careful, as it will bubble violently at first. Add the remaining cream, milk and salt. Put the yolks in a metal or glass bowl and whisk lightly. When the cream mixture is starting to steam, whisk a cup or so, ¼ cup at a time, into the yolks to temper them. Once the eggs are tempered, slowly whisk them into the cream mixture. Stirring constantly, cook over low heat roughly 5 minutes, or until the cream mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Do NOT let this mixture come to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in the Whisper Creek and vanilla extract.

Chill the mixture in your refrigerator until completely cool. Process according to the instructions of your ice cream maker. Blend in pecans and transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze for as long as you can, preferably overnight.


Coffee and Creek Jelly Shots

Coffee and Creek Jelly Shot RecipeThese dramatic gems of gelatin take the infamous “jello shot” from frat parties and dress it up ready for gourmet dinner parties. You can choose to layer the two flavors, pouring one on top of the other or make it more stunning by suspending cubes of the Whisper Creek gelatin in the coffee gelatin.

INGREDIENTS:

Whisper Creek® Jelly Shot
½ cup cold water
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Whisper Creek®
2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin
1 cup black coffee (chilled)
1 cup coffee liqueur
2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin

To make the Whisper Creek® gelatin, start by pouring water into a small saucepan. Before turning on the heat, sprinkle the gelatin over the water and allow it to soak up the moisture for a minute or two. Once it has absorbed the water, turn heat on low and add the sweetened condensed milk. As the mixture warms, the gelatin will dissolve. Once it is fully dissolved, remove from heat, add Whisper Creek and stir to combine. Pour into a flat-bottomed pan and refrigerate until set (about one hour). For best results, prepare a spot in the refrigerator where you can be sure the pan is level prior to chilling the gelatin.

Prepare the coffee gelatin by adding the coffee (chilled or room temperature, but not hot) into a saucepan. Sprinkle the gelatin over the coffee and allow it to soak up the moisture before turning heat on low. Once the gelatin has fully dissolved, remove from heat and add stir in coffee liqueur.

To avoid melting the Whisper Creek® gelatin, allow your coffee gelatin to sit at room temperature and cool down before pouring over the Whisper Creek layer. If you want to create a dramatic look, slice the Whisper Creek® layer into small cubes and spread them around the pan evenly before pouring the coffee gelatin into the pan. Refrigerate on a level surface until chilled. Slice into squares and serve.

Whisper Creek® Apple Crisp

Whisper Creek Apple Crisp RecipeWho doesn't love the simple deliciousness of apple crisp? Well, this recipe takes it to a whole other level with the addition of Whisper Creek, which enhances the flavors to something you've never tasted before. Made with the addition of old-fashioned apple butter, this dessert really creates a depth of apple flavor, brought out even further from the natural apple flavor in Whisper Creek (one of many all-natural southern flavors).

INGREDIENTS:

Apple Filling
4 cups fresh apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/3 cup old-fashioned apple butter
1/3 cup Whisper Creek®
1/3 cup granulated sugar
½ tablespoon all purpose flour

 

Crisp Topping

½ cup rolled oats
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup melted butter
½ teaspoon baking powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toss apples with apple butter, Whisper Creek, granulated sugar and ½ tablespoon flour until well combined. Set aside. Mix remaining ingredients together until combined to form crumb topping.

Divide apple filling into 4-6 well-greased oven-safe dishes. Apple mixture should rise above the top, as it will settle when cooking. Top each with crumb topping, place on a baking sheet and bake in the center rack for approximately 25-30 minutes or until top has browned lightly and apples are bubbling.


Whisper Creek® & Pecan Bread Pudding

Whisper Creek Pecan Bread Pudding RecipeWhen it comes to comfort food, dessert is often at the top of the list and bread pudding is usually at the top of that! This simple recipe pairs the complex flavors of Whisper Creek® with the nutty flavors of pecans, one of the many southern flavors in the product itself. Bread pudding is best when served fresh and warm, but you can also choose to let it cool and reheat in the microwave. But if you really want to do something decadent, slice it and reheat the slices in a skillet with butter and a light dusting of sugar!

INGREDIENTS:

1 loaf Challah bread (approx. 1 pound)
5 eggs
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
2 cups cream, divided
2/3 cup Whisper Creek®, divided
1 cup chopped pecans

Caramel Sauce
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter
¼ cup Whisper Creek®
½ teaspoon corn starch

Whisk eggs, sugar, vanilla and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl. Reserve 1/3 cup each of heavy cream and Whisper Creek and pour remaining 1 2/3 cups of cream and 1/3 cup of Whisper Creek® into egg mixture. Blend well until combined thoroughly.

Cut bread into 1 inch cubes. Toss well with custard mixture and refrigerate overnight to allow bread to absorb.

Preheat oven to 350.  Remove soaked bread from refrigerator and transfer to a well-greased oven-safe dish or cast iron skillet. Spread the mixture out evenly and drizzle remaining 1/3 cup of cream and Whisper Creek® evenly over the top.

Cover loosely with foil and place in the center rack for approximately 45 minutes until the bread pudding puffs in the center. Remove foil and return to oven for another 10 minutes or until the top browns lightly.

While baking, prepare the caramel sauce by adding cream, sugar and butter to a small saucepan over medium heat. Slowly heat until almost boiling. Blend the cornstarch with the Whisper Creek® and stir into the hot cream and sugar mixture. Bring to a boil to thicken and remove from heat.

Serve bread pudding warm with caramel sauce. If desired, top with a dollop of freshly-whipped cream.
