Like our list of recipes with half and half, or condensed milk desserts, these recipes with heavy cream are yummy and easy.
For example, there is an easy strawberry shortcake recipe and brown sugar whipped cream. But there are also savory recipes like tortellini in asparagus broth and the creamiest mashed potatoes you’ve ever had.
So are you ready to explore this tasty list?
Let’s dive in!
Easy Strawberry Shortcake
You’ll love how easy it is to make this summertime strawberry shortcake from Nicole of The Fresh Apron. You replace the butter with heavy whipping cream for the biscuit to make it light and flaky. The strawberries are as juicy as can be. And the lemony homemade whipped cream is delicate like a cloud.

Homemade Bourbon Caramel Sauce
Add a little unexpected zing to your life with this bourbon caramel sauce from Kristin of Dirt And Dough. It’s the same great taste you get with caramel sauce. So it’s still creamy and sweet but with a hint of bourbon. You can use it as a cake topping, cookies, or your morning cup of Joe.

Tortellini In Asparagus Broth
Not only is this springtime tortellini in asparagus broth from Redwood Kitchen succulent, fresh, and seasonal. It features prepared tortellini combined with a rich broth that includes leeks, asparagus, dill, wine, heavy cream, and more. And because it uses the tougher, fibrous parts of leeks and asparagus, it’s also a less wasteful offering.

Brown Sugar Whipped Cream
Brown sugar whipped cream from Ali of The Littlest Crumb is a three-ingredient topping that’s a glamorous addition to pumpkin, sweet potato, and apple pies. The molasses in brown sugar provides a unique richness that will level up your fall sweet treats.
