Buttermilk pie is like a chameleon of a dessert. One of my friends had made it one evening. I had never even heard of the thing but he told me to close my eyes and take a bite. Now get this… It tasted so FAMILIAR like a sweet potato pie or pumpkin pie but not really. Nevertheless is was so delicious so I decided to make it one night for my children. Super easy to make and not too many things needed to pull it off.
1 pie crust (9 inch)
1 stick of butter softened ***Remember softened is NOT melted. You simply leave the butter out of the fridge to get soft.***
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons of flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon nutmeg
A pinch of cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat the eggs until they look foamy with all these little bubbles. Mix butter, sugar and flour. Beat until smooth. Finally add the buttermilk, vanilla, cinnamon, lemon juice and nutmeg. Again beat until smooth.
Then pour the mixture into the pie shell.
Let the pie bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Check on it to confirm the middle is firm. Carefully remove the pie from the oven. I had shaky hands so I cracked mine. Cosmetically, I was pissed however did it still taste good?? Yes and it didn’t survive the night. Add whip cream or ice cream on top if you like!
