Substitute whipped cream for heavy cream.

I have a recipe that calls for heavy cream. I don't have any. I do however have a tub of cool whip. Can i use that instead. If not what is heavy cream and where do I find it? I've never used it before...

    No. You find heavy cream in the dairy section. Its just super thick cream...a bit thicker than milk and full of fat, but no extra ingredients like sugar or vanilla. If you want to go a touch lighter you can use regular cream instead.

    No whipped cream and heavy cream are two completely different things. Heavy cream can be found in the milk/dairy aisle.

    Ok. Thank you. :) I didn't want to just try the whipped cream without knowing. Any brand you would recommend?

    No, I usually use the store brand because its a bit pricey. For an 8 oz container you pay about the same as you would for a gallon of milk.

    No brand is really better. It's essentially milk. I shop organic and I prefer milk in glass bottles and I go with rooneybrook farms for all my milk needs which is local to my area in NYC.

    That is pricey. I don't need much though so a small thing should be enough. Thank you!
