How do you like your pumpkin pie?
Straight up, with no toppings?
Topped with whipped or heavy cream?
Topped with a toasted meringue?
Or is a mixed nut topping of some sort like a streusal more to your liking?
Perhpaps not nuts, but a crumb topping of some sort (e.g. brown sugar, flour, butter, etc.)?
Or something fruity, like a jam or sauce?
plain pie with a dollop of freshly made whipping cream. Thanksgiving is just about the only time of year when we can get non-ultrapasteurized heavy cream, so we enjoy it when we can. Great on pecan or sweet potato pie, too.
I am a purist. I like me some straight up pumpkin pie, no need for condiments. In fact, I secretly am not a huge fan of pie crust. The crust is a carrier for the pumpkin custard and nothing more. Were it up to me I would just bake a big pumpkin custard and be done with it!
