Sour Cream/Whipped Cream on Desserts Wed, 12/4/13 4:22 PM (permalink)
Does anyone besides me use Sour Cream in place of Whipped Cream? I really like that contrast the Sour Cream provides. Another layer of flavor.

    I do have a couple of cheesecake recipes that call for sour cream piped along the edge instead of whipped cream, but I can't say I'm a fan of it sitting on top. Mixed in, absolutely, for the layer of flavour you mentioned. But on top it just tastes wrong to me.

        I use sour cream on baked potatoes, not on my pumpkin or apple, peach, blackberry, blueberry or pecan pies.  And definitely NOT on strawberry rhubarb pie.  bb would disown me!

            In France we never, ever put crème fraîche on top of a tarte.

                I prefer sour cream on fresh fruit, or plain Greek yogurt with a swirl of agave. Whipped cream a must on pie.

                  I like my sour cream mixed with cottage cheese, black pepper and torn pieces of hard roll.

                    Fresh peaches, sour cream and sugar.  Heaven
                     
                    I like the sour contrast that sour cream offers.

                          chewy - Just about any dessert. Pie, cake, fresh fruit, works well on all.
                           
                          Why is Cheddar cheese on Apple pie so strange. I think I was almost taught to eat it that way from the beginning. Also great with Bleu cheese.

                            A lot of people say that Reuben's sound disgusting; sauerkraut on corned beef? When I point out that corned beef comes from the same flavor family as hot dogs, most people find it makes a lot more sense.
                             
                            Fruit and cheese are often served in combination.

                                I once knew a New Hampshire man whose breakfast every day of his life -- from childhood into his 50th year of marriage -- included just-baked apple pie topped with creamed tripe.

                                  In my house, as well as in the old delis, sour cream was always used as a topping for cheese and fruit blintzes.

                                    While my father liked sugar and cinnamon on his blintzes, (alal forms of his idiocy did not get passed on) sour cream has always been my blintz topping. Same for latkes.

                                      Love my latkes and blintzes covered in sour cream.
                                       
                                      Also...  try dipping strawberries in sour cream and then brown sugar before popping them in to your mouth.
