BigOven Food Fight – Pie Accompaniments: Cool Ice Cream vs. Wonderful Whipped Cream

Pie-Accompanients--11.23

 

After everyone has stuffed themselves with turkey and fixings, hopefully there’s room left for something sweet. We all know Thanksgiving pies are the ultimate dessert! Whether it’s pecan or pumpkin or apple, one slice or two, pie perfectly closes out a delicious Thanksgiving feast. Now for the most important decision—which topping to choose for your favorite pie? Do you crave the simple, pure taste of ice cream? Or do you prefer the frothy goodness of freshly whipped cream?

An unadorned pie is a travesty to most. Some opt for a big rounded scoop of vanilla ice cream, adding just the right touch of cool creaminess to freshly baked pie. It’s a classic combo, that’s for sure. 

Others pick a heaping dollop of fresh whipped cream, providing an excellent airy accompaniment to pie’s down-to-earth goodness. Just don’t forget to lick the beaters! Unless your whipped cream is coming from the can. 

Either way, your taste buds will enjoy reaching their final plane of food nirvana as the Thanksgiving meal comes to a close.

So, will you be scooping on the ice cream or spooning on the whipped cream?
