Vin Santo, Late Harvest Riesling, and Lambrusco Dolce are my top picks for Pie. These wines are all sweet, which is important since wine should usually be sweeter than the food you're pairing with it. The Angel Late Harvest Riesling with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 19 dollars per bottle.

Angel Late Harvest Riesling

Messina Hof's Angel is a crisp, sweet dessert wine, harvested from the last pick of Riesling when the grapes are almost raisins. Perfect with fruit, cheesecake and light, sweet chocolate desserts.

Instructions

First, the crust. Place the graham crackers in a Ziploc bag, and with a rolling pin, crush them. My guy always comes around when it's time to do this, and does it for me. I think he likes it. In a medium bowl, mix the graham cracker crumbs with the sugar. Add the melted butter, and mix well. Press the graham cracker mixture into a pie plate, and refrigerate for about a half hour. Now, the filling! Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Stir in the brown sugar (and molasses, if you're using it). Keep the heat low, and stir until the brown sugar is all melted and bubbly. Add 1/2 cup of the heavy cream, and stir until the brown sugar and butter are dissolved. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup of the heavy cream, all of the milk, and the salt. Remove from heat, and let cool until lukewarm. I find this only takes about 10 minutes. Mix together the cornstarch and water, and pour it into the pudding mixture. Reheat over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to thicken. It'll thicken fast with all that corn starch! Turn heat to low, and continue to stir vigorously while keeping it at a good simmer for about a minute. Remove from heat, and stir in the whiskey and vanilla. Whiskey wasn't in my original Butterscotch Pudding recipe, but I love the addition for this pie. Gives it a little extra somethin' somethin'. Pour the pudding mixture into the chilled pie crust. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least two hours. Ready for the topping? Whip the 1 1/2 cups chilled heavy whipping cream with the wire whisk attachment on your stand mixer (you can do this by hand, but it would be quite the workout). Add the sugar and vanilla to the cream while it's whipping. It's ready when soft peaks form. Yum. I'm stating the obvious, but remove the pie from the fridge and take off the plastic wrap. Pile on the whipping cream. I like to spread it almost to the edges, but not quite - gotta give folks a glimpse of the actual pie yumminess! If you want, garnish with a little shaved chocolate. I just took the carrot peeler to a Hershey bar. Or leave it plain. Either way! Enjoy!
