How to thicken the cooking cream?

Thickening cream simply requires slow and easy heat. Place the cream in a saucepan over a low flame and stir gently and constantly to prevent it from scorching. Keep the heat low and let it simmer, with only small bubbles on the surface. (Don’t rush, as the cream may separate if it boils.) Check the cream’s consistency by dipping the back of a spoon into the saucepan. Cooking cream will continue to thicken slightly as it cools, so if you prefer a thinner consistency for sauces, you can remove the pan from the heat as soon as the spoon is smoothly coated and the cream does not run when you wipe a finger through it. For a thicker consistency for fillings or toppings, keep simmering until the cream thickly coats the spoon.

You can thicken the cream to varying degrees depending on what you’re using it for. Sauces usually need a thinner cream, while a thicker cream is better for fillings.

Is cooking cream different from whipping cream?

Yes, and it all comes down to heat resistance. The main difference between cooking cream and whipping cream is the fat content, which gives them different culinary uses. Cooking cream has a lower fat content, giving it natural resistance to burning or separating while cooking. This makes Puck Cooking Cream an ideal and versatile ingredient for stews, sauces, soups, and baked desserts. Whipping cream’s higher fat content makes it more suited to achieving light, fluffy textures in more delicate desserts because it holds its shape when whipped.

Is cooking cream different from heavy cream?

Yes, they have some notable differences. Heavy cream, also known as heavy whipping cream, is most suited to whipping and piping because its high fat content allows it to hold its shape and form stiff peaks. Cooking cream has a lower fat content and is more resistant to breaking down when cooked at high heat, making it ideal for infusing stews, soups, sauces, and baked treats with rich, creamy flavors. If your recipe calls for stewing, simmering, sautéing, or baking, you’ll want to use Puck Cooking Cream.

Can cooking cream be used in desserts?

Absolutely! Cooking cream is perfect for elevating the textures and flavors of many classic Arabic sweets and other global delights. Make your Mouhalabieh thicker and richer than ever before. Mix it into your Om Ali recipe for an even deeper, more indulgent flavor. Ice cream becomes pure, silky luxury with cooking cream. You can add it to your French toast recipe for a richer batter that is less likely to burn in the pan. Or use it to elevate the velvety bliss of buttercream frostings, butter cookies, or crème caramel. Puck Cooking Cream opens the door to a whole world of sweet possibilities.
