What's Pie Without Whipped Cream?

This make-ahead recipe was written specifically for Thanksgiving, but comes in handy anytime you are entertaining and have plans to serve a dessert that needs a little whipped cream love. The benefit is you can go straight from dinner to dessert without having to prepare the whipped cream.

The Fat and Acid and Cold Bowl Tricks

Two things help stabilize whipped cream:
  1. A little fat and acid which can be added with sour cream, creme fraiche or full-fat Greek yogurt. There is some science as to why this works. Essentially the extra fat and acid helps solidify the little bubbles of cream-covered air. I learned this trick from Anna Stockwell of Epicurious.
  2. Chilled whipped cream, a cold bowl and even cold beaters will result in more voluminous and sturdy whipped cream.

2 T sifted powdered sugar

  3. Refresh with a light whip with a hand whisk just before serving.
