This post brought to you by Crisco // Who says pies are just for the holidays? Not me for sure!! I've been on a bit of a pie kick lately and had to share a recipe that I've loved for years. Buttermilk Pie…
I was first introduced to this recipe while visiting some family about 16 year ago and was mesmerized with it ever since. I remember sitting down to a holiday table full of all kinds of desserts, fancy fruit pies, pretty cakes, over the top cookies, and then there was this humble pie sitting in the corner. It wasn't very pretty, it was more like the ugly duckling of the bunch. But, when everyone started in on the dessert table everyone heading to that pie first. I was a little surprised and rather perplexed… I needed to try a piece for myself. I was instantly smitten and had to find out what this little gem was. My Aunt who I hadn't met before told me it was a buttermilk pie and from that point on I was in love.
So, what is Buttermilk pie? Does it taste like buttermilk? Nope… It's a lovely custard like pie that is super simple to make. It's a staple in the southern kitchen however it has roots from across the pond in Great Britain. It's a rich pie that is sometimes compared to crème brûlée. It's amazing on it's own but you can add a some berries and whipped cream and it's over the top amazing!!
First, you need to make your pie crust. I stick with the tried and true Classic Crisco Pie Crust, this crust is almost fool-proof. You can check out my post with three tips on how to make picture perfect pie crust and you'll look like a pro!
Once your crust is made and resting in the refrigerator, you can mix-up the filling.
Buttermilk Pie Recipe
1 Classic Crisco Pie Crust (unbaked) 9 inches
1 1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons AP flour
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350˚
In a mixing bowl combine eggs, sugar, flour, butter, buttermilk, vanilla & a pinch of salt. Mix well with the whisk attachment. Pour into the unbaked pie crust and bake at 350˚ for 45-50 minutes or until the custard is set and slightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely. This pie is best served at room temperature or chilled.
Store in the refrigerator.
