What to do with a pint of cream?

So, we had a big party for my Dad this weekend, and my brother and I got the food quantities pretty much right except we ran out of strawberries and have loads of cream left. I have a pint of cream which probably needs to be eaten in the next few days. Rather than fritter it away on puddings and in coffee, I could make something - but i have no idea what. Fellow Chowhounders, your suggestions welcome.

  1. Check the expiration date. Cream usually has a huge window so you could fritter to your heart's content :)

      That's a week or two, btw. Milk products keep best unopened.

      1. Rice Pudding. Crème Brulee.

          These two things play well with fresh summer berries, too.

          1. Just whip it! Whip it good!

            (try as I might, I couldn't resist)

            How about just buying more strawberries?
