Do you like whipped cream on your fruit pie?

Just no.

  1. I like whipped cream. I like fruit. I like fruit pie. I like whipped cream on my fruit. I like whipped cream on my fruit pie.

    1. I don't really like fruit pie but I don't HATE it. Whipped cream makes it yummier for me.

      1. No. Love fruit pie. No whipped cream!

        1. No. Unless it's a whipped cream pie. I think whipped cream on a fruit pie quickly turns to a milky puddle and ruins the great fruit, adds too much richness to an already rich fruit (if done right). On the other hand a whipped cream pie with pudding underneath or a lemon or lime curd with super whipped fresh cream can be light and refreshing on a hot summer day.

          so no on traditional. top and/or bottom crusted fruit pies
          and yes to the refrigerated cream pies

            just put it on the side, or in a separate dish.

              you jest? whipped cream in a separate dish for a slice of pie?
              heavens NO.

                a monkey dish of whipped cream, or nearly everything else you can think of, is very typical of every diner in these parts. nearly everything is served "on the side" and/or in a monkey dish and any request for "on the side" is never met with resistance.

            2. Yes. I like it on all types of pies. I also prefer it on cakes (rather than frosting). I love it on fresh fruit too...or on my finger.
