Pie Topping

Pie Topping is an important constituent of a pie as it adds to the overall flavor and also enhances the visual appeal and appearance of the final dish. In order to make Pie topping one requires the basic usage of crust toppings, whipped cream, meringues and crumb toppings depending upon the filling and the size of the pie. Meringues, which are made up of egg whites beaten together with sugar, and also whipped cream, are high in calories, hence certain types of crust and whipped toppings are prepared as low-cal substitutes in order to appeal to the health conscious connoisseurs. Some of the popular pie toppings include the Granola topping, the Chocolate topped rum pie and the batter-topped chicken pie. Pie Toppings may vary according to the region, availability of ingredients and individual tastes.
