First, call it what it is: it’s punkin’ pie. Do not say “pumpkin” to me. Ever. Why? Because it is not proper. Now stop arguing with me.
OTHER ACCEPTABLE DESSERTS
Yes, you CAN enjoy other desserts besides the punkin’ pie. For instance, a delicious egg nog cheesecake made by your cousin, Mindy. However, you must have at least a small slice of the punkin’. It is not Thanksgiving unless you’ve had the punkin’ goodness.
UNACCEPTABLE DESSERT CONSUMPTION
Eating something like chocolate chip cookies is a travesty. I mean, really? You can eat those any old day of the year. Don’t be a lamer. Eat the dang pie. And like it.
THE WHIPPED TOPPING TO PIE RATIO
Some experts say my theories on this are controversial, but I stand by it. In my opinion, there is no such thing as too much whipped topping. The topping should cover the top of your slice like snow atop a log cabin in the cold of winter. You should experience the topping in each bite. This is not like adding a dollop of sour cream to a burrito. You must think of the topping as an extension of the dessert itself.
I recommend Cool Whip. Canned topping works in a pinch, but nothing replaces the creamy, velvety blanket of deliciousness on my pie.
Thank you for reading my blog. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loves ones!
