    we found that the lemon over powered the cardamon. Also it was a bit runny.

    Delectable! The morning after I made this, I found the melted butter still in the microwave, so it never made it into the pie--it still tasted incredible (almost like a cross between cheesecake and custard--I think the sour cream is key). I didn't have lemon zest so I used two tablespoons of lemon juice concentrate. I also didn't have cardamom so I subbed cinnamon and allspice. For some reason, it took 90 minutes to cook (maybe the missing butter?) but it was absolutely perfect. I chose this recipe because I had 3 egg yolks to use (leftover from a contest recipe that called for 3 egg whites) and buttermilk that was getting past its prime. I'm so glad I made this!

    I made this for Thanksgiving this year, using the crust recipe that came in Saveur, rather than the pie shell this version calls for. The pie was absolutely the hit of the dinner, and will be a new family classic. The crust recipe from Saveur took hours (add butter to dry ingredients, freeze. Incorporate in food processor, refrigerate. Roll out, refrigerate. Pre-bake.) but was the best crust I've ever made. Even so, I'll probably go a simpler route next time. I can see why chia went for an unbaked shell. I think a graham cracker crust would be ideal with this recipe, so that's what I'll do next time. I think an orange vanilla version or other flavors other than lemon/cardamom would be delicious, too. But the cardamom was really fabulous, and a stand-out.
