Bring on the whipped cream.

A big dollop of the stuff is every pie's best friend. Try these variations when you want to up the ante.

BASIC RECIPE

Using a mixer, beat 1 cup heavy whipping cream with 2 tbsp. powdered or granulated sugar (they work equally well) and 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract until thick.

VARIATIONS

Add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Great with apple pie.

Add 1 to 2 tsp. instant espresso. Try with nut or chocolate cream pies.

Replace sugar with 3 tbsp. honey. Good with any pie, year-round.

Omit the vanilla and add 1,4 cup minced crystallized ginger. Excellent with pumpkin or apple pies.

Replace vanilla with 1 tsp. lemon or orange zest. Brightens up any holiday pie.

Replace half the cream with creme fraiche, and use brown sugar instead of powdered. A snazzy topper for any pie.
