Let me start this off with a major disclaimer. I don't really like pie all that much. I like the filling of pie, but pie crust disgusts me. Unless a pie has a graham cracker crust, I eat the filling and leave the crust to go to whoever wants it. Tomorrow, when we break out the pumpkin pie, I will be a happy camper eating it sans crust.

There are two types of people when it comes to pumpkin pie consumption. These two types of people are not defined by the pie itself, but what gets put on the pie. I won't even bring up Cool-Whip because that stuff is just plain nasty. Are you a person who puts only a small dollop of whipped cream or do you smother your pie in whipped cream?

Putting just a single dollop of whipped cream on pumpkin pie does make it look pretty for Instagram, but does it make it taste as good as losing the pie in a mound of whipped cream? I don't think so.

How do you eat your pie? Do you like a dollop of whipped cream? Do you like to drown your pie in whipped cream? Note: Cool Whip is not included because it does not belong on or in anything, unless it's in the garbage can.
