For a fluffy topping that's a little different, sour cream is added to heavy whipping cream in this lightly-sweetened dessert topping. It provides a slightly tangy note that will balance out any rich pie—and it can be made up to 8 hours ahead. Sour whipped cream works particularly well with our Florida Citrus Pie.
