Heavy Cream  
The fatty liquid that rises to the top of milk when the milk is allowed to stand. Cream can be classified as heavy cream or light cream depending on the butterfat content. Heavy cream contains approximately 36% butterfat and is suitable for whipping. Heavy cream can be substituted with a mixture of 1/4 cup of butter and 3/4 cup of milk, but not if it is to be made into whipping cream.
