Pie Topping
2 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream

Bring one cup of cream to a boil over medium heat. Add White Chocolate and stir constantly until the chocolate is melted, and mixture is combined. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for at least four hours. In a large bowl, beat the rest of the cream with an electric mixer set on high speed. Beat until soft peaks form. Slowly add the white chocolate mixture and continue to beat until stiff. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Keeping with the red, white, and blue look of the pie, you may garnish the pie in a variety of ways, if desired. For example, patriotic decorations.
