Sometimes the sun rises in the west, sometimes people actually do the right thing, and sometimes a fantastic cream dessert comes from the most unlikely of places. Recently I was in McDonald’s for an egg, cheese and bacon biscuit breakfast. Now, I don’t want to imply that it’s so unlikely for McDonald’s to have a great cream dessert, for their shakes and soft serve are respectable. However, the cream dessert I ate at McDonald’s on this recent trip defied expectations.
It’s the holiday pie, and it’s a flaky, Christmas cookie-style crust filled with a supple custard. It’s simply an excellent cream dessert, and I know I’ll be eating 20 or 30 before the holidays pass into oblivion.
