SOUTHERN BUTTERMILK PIE

I can imagine what you are thinking? I have heard it many times. What is buttermilk pie? Is it made with buttermilk? Do you taste all that buttermilk? I do not like buttermilk. This pie sounds terrible! I PROMISE! This dessert tastes nothing like buttermilk. It is so surprisingly amazing and magical.

Equipment

  • mixer
  • pie crust

Ingredients

  • 8 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 9 inch unbaked DEEP DISH pie shell

Instructions

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees
  • Cream the butter and sugar together well.
  • Beat in the flour and eggs.
  • Stir in the buttermilk, vanilla, and nutmeg.
  • Bake 60 to 70 minutes or until the custard sets.
  • The pie will giggle some, but it should not be watery.
  • Chill over night or 8 hours before serving.

Notes

You have to use a Deep Dish pie crust.  The recipe will overflow in a regular pie crust.

TIPS:

  • To add a little crunch on the top of the pie, cover it with a tablespoon or two of sugar. 

  • After 55 minutes of baking, the center will still jiggle slightly.  If it jiggles a lot, the pie is not done. It will set up after refrigerating overnight.
