Can I Use Whipped Cream in Place of Heavy Cream in a Recipe?

Q: I have some leftover cream that I whipped last night. I am cooking a quiche right now that calls for 1/2 cup of cream. Can I use 1 cup of my already whipped cream (just so it’s not wasted) instead? In this recipe, all the ingredients (eggs, brie cheese, milk, cream) go together in a blender and are poured into a pastry shell.

Editor: As long as your whipped cream is unflavored (no vanilla or sugar), I actually think this would work quite well! Go for it!

Readers, any thoughts?
