I am making creamed corn. the recipe calls for 2 Tbsp whipped with 1 cup of whole milk. Can I add more flour or heavy whipping cream to fat free milk?

2 tabledspoons of whipped what? Whipped cream? If so, you take whipping cream and beat it with a wisk or a fork until it doubles in volume, and then follow the recipy.
Or you mean 2 tablespoons whiping cream? This is the same as heavy cream (also sold as 35% cream).
Or you're trying to substiture skim milk for whole milk? If so you can make the substitution without modification, or you can take 1 cup minus 1 tablespoon of skin milk and 3 tablespoons of heavy cream.

I wouldn't add more flour, as that will make it pasty. It will probably be even more delicious with a bit of heavy cream, though! If you use 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, and then make up the rest of the 1 cup with skim milk, you'll have a pretty close simulation of whole milk. If it were me, I might be tempted to use 3-4 tablespoons of cream... :) Happy Thanksgiving!
