You may know Krystal Keith as the singer of the sweet father/daughter wedding dance song, “Daddy Dance With Me,” which she wrote for her own wedding as a surprise for dad Toby Keith. Or maybe you know her from her official debut single, “Get Your Redneck On.” [Get it here!] But did you know she’s also super talented in the kitchen? Krystal’s been creating delicious meals from family recipes for years and featuring them in her blog, The Barnyard Bistro. But now she’s sharing some of them exclusively with Great American Country! Check back with us every Tuesday for a new recipe from Krystal.
“I am a freak for whipped cream,” says Krystal. “The subtle sweetness and light airy texture is the perfect compliment to the tart flavor of berries. I love taking something simple and kicking it up a notch. I have been experimenting with adding yummy flavors into my icings (like the Caramel Buttercream I shared a couple weeks back) and whipped cream, like this orange flavored whipped cream. It’s like Dreamsicle dip!
3/4c whipping cream
1/2 tsp orange flavor extract
3 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
Keep your cream in the fridge until the very last second to ensure it is ice cold. Use your whip attachment on a stand or hand mixer and whip the heavy cream until it thickens and starts to hold its form when pulled to a peak. Add in the flavor, sugar and vanilla and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Serve alongside your favorite fruit. This is especially fitting for strawberries and tropical fruits like pineapple and mango.
