    Tis’ the season of homemade pies (topped with cream of course)! I just love this time of year. Crazy to think that Thanksgiving is only a couple of weeks away. Every year on Thanksgiving we have an assortment of pies and of course homemade whipped cream to go on top.

    Favorite desserts to top with homemade whipped cream

    Pies: My favorite dessert to top with whipped cream is a piece of homemade pie! I especially love to serve it with pumpkin pie. Funny thing is, I don’t love it plain…but top it with homemade whipped cream and I LOVE it. Funny what a little cream can do. Makes it nice and sweet!

    Cakes: Cake always tastes better with homemade whipped cream! Try serving it with dump cake, better than anything cake or pumpkin crunch cake.
