This recipe is the traditional filling used at Christmas time as a filling for Italian cookies but surely could be used for filling puff pastry. Leftovers can be stored in refrigerator in tightly covered container. This recipe can easily be doubled.

Ingredients:

  • ½ vanilla bean
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Split vanilla bean lengthwise with the tip of a sharp knife. Holding the pod open, scrape seeds from each half using the flat side of the knife. Transfer seeds to a large bowl; discard pod.

Pour cream over vanilla seeds; add sugar and vanilla extract. Whip cream with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, 3 to 5 minutes; cover with plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
