Mulled Cider with Whipped Cream

Okay… this is my all time favourite fall treat!  
Ingredients:
Apple Cider
Whipping Cream
Vanilla Extract
Granulated Sugar
Optional: Carmel Sauce
Directions:
1.  In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the apple cider and mulling spices.  Add a 2-3 teaspoons of spices to 2 litres/1 half gallon of cider using a tea infuser or tea filter.  Once cider begins to bubble, reduce heat to low and simmer for 30-45 minutes.  Feel free to stop here… the cider is delicious all by itself!
2.  Not everyone knows this, but whipped cream and apple cider are a match made in heaven.  I use a pint of whipping cream, 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar and about a teaspoon of vanilla extract.  Whip with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.  The measurements are guesses because I don’t really measure when I make whipped cream and taste testing as you go is a must.
3.  Top cider with whipped cream and enjoy!
4.  Optional: Carmel sauce drizzled over the top is fantastic.  Mine was way past its expiration date so Grant and I had our cider last night without it.  Making your own carmel sauce is also an option, but I found that you end up with a ton of sauce that goes bad before we could eat it all.
