Add a splash of the hot liquid to the egg yolks and whisk them together. Then add a little more liquid and whisk again. Add the egg yolk mixture to the pot and mix it well with a whisk.

Stir it in a little with a rubber spatula and then let it sit for 20 seconds. Then stir in the vanilla and salt. Do this until all the chocolate melts. It will look like it's beginning to separate.

Slowly add the milk and sour cream while stirring. The custard will stick together, but there will be bits in it. Those are bits of brown butter! Put it in the pie shell and put it in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
