With November and Thanksgiving just around the corner, plan to wow your dinner guests with delicious, creative desserts. Today, I’m sharing my absolute favorite whipped cream recipe that is the perfect accompaniment to just about any fall dessert, plus some pretty Thanksgiving dessert toppers to help make a pretty presentation a snap!
Thanksgiving truly is one of my favorite days of the year. I feel like in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it is a time when we are all encouraged to slow down and enjoy the company of those we love most. Some of my fondest Thanksgiving memories as a child are of our meal winding down, the adults sipping cups of coffee and visiting about any number of topics as we all enjoyed the delicious confections my mom and grandmothers had prepared for dessert.
The yummy seasonal flavors available through December from Coffee-mate would be the perfect addition to any Thanksgiving dessert course. With flavors like Pumpkin Spice and Spiced Latte, plus Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Mocha and Dark Chocolate Fudge (yum!), these delicious creamers are obviously perfect paired with a tall cup of coffee, but they are also delicious when incorporated into any number of desserts. Coffee-mate has a delicious lineup of seasonal recipes available on their site. My personal favorite are the individual swirled pumpkin cheesecakes, which I prepared today to go along with my to-die-for whipped vanilla-spice whipped cream recipe, made using one of my favorite of the 25 flavors available from Coffee-mate, Cinnamon Vanilla Creme.
Vanilla-Spice Whipped Cream
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon Cinnamon Vanilla Creme Coffee-mate
- Place all ingredients in a chilled bowl. Beat at high speed until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Serve as a topping on your favorite fall dessert.
