On TV, most grandmas are stereotypical for making everything from scratch. My IRL (in real life) grandma is pretty much the opposite of that. You name the kitchen shortcut and that lady takes it. She has always loved to be outside and on the go; the kitchen is probably one of her least favorite places to waste, er, I mean, spend time. She spent many Thanksgivings with us at our home in Arizona and her annual contribution to the meal was always a pumpkin pie. From Costco. In her defense, Costco does make a decent pumpkin pie. Topped with a dollop of this easy homemade bourbon whipped cream, though, that store-bought pumpkin pie gets a gourmet makeover.

Besides being really simple to make, it is such a versatile way to add homemade flavor to just about anything you top with it. We use it on ice cream, crisps and cobblers, waffles and even on our chai lattes.
