I used fresh, sliced mushrooms. The recipe did not call for whipping cream but I added it after tasting it with the sour cream only. I did not care for the sour cream taste. Whipping Cream makes it much better. I simply poured in enough to suit my taste---maybe 1/2 cup---and oh what a difference it made! I will most definitely make this again and soon!
