This pie is AMAZING. It's super easy to make and easily impressive! It's one of those pies no words can really describe until you bite into and realize the flavor explosion happening in your mouth. I fed this pie to a couple of people and after devouring it all they could say was "Oh my god, this pie is awesome!!!"
1 pie crust (pie, graham cracker, whatever)
2 cups apple cider
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp salt
4 large eggs (I used medium and it turned out fine)
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1) in a medium saucepan, boil the cider until it's reduced to about 1/2 cup. This should take about 10 minutes on medium high heat. Transfer to a bowl and let it cool
2) Once cool whisk in 3/4 cup sugar, the sour cream, and salt. Once mixed, whisk in the eggs (I did them one at a time to make sure it was mixed well).
3) Pour the custard into the pie shell . Bake pie at 350 degrees in the lower third of your oven for 35-40 minutes (until the custard is set around the edges and the very center is slightly jiggly) Let the pie cool completely!!!
4) In a medium bowl (once your pie is cooled) using an electric mixer beat together the heavy cream, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, and the cinnamon until firmly whipped (you are making whipped cream so you want the consistency of whipped cream. Took about 5 minutes for me). Mound the whipped cream on top of the pie and serve!
