As I was thinking of items to truffle for the holidays, I had a lot of ideas of traditional dishes and how I could incorporate our different sauces. However, one thing I knew is that I wanted to do something different, something most people probably wouldn't try, something that I knew would stand out from all of the other dishes. It had to be dessert!
Growing up, my whole family used to come over for a Thanksgiving feast, and a Christmas feast at that, and we would have a table full of pies. Pumpkin, Pecan, Apple, Sweet Potato, Cherry typically made up the spread of mouth-watering flavors. While I know I could incorporate truffles into a couple if not all of those pies I wanted to do something more versatile and less time consuming. Why not make something that can go with all or most of those? How about a good homemade whipped cream!
