Buttermilk Pie

Have you ever had Buttermilk Pie or even heard of it? It reminds me of something truly from the heartland of America. I found this recipe ages ago in the newspaper and clipped it out and made it. My husband and son loved it. I placed the recipe in my drawer and forgot about it and decided it was time to make another one yesterday.

I have a slower oven, so the baking time for me was a good hour to get it browned up and set in the middle.

Here's the recipe if you'd like to try it:

1 stick melted butter
1 3/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 beaten eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked 9 inch deep-dish pie crust

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until nice and smooth.

Pour mixture into unbaked pie crust and bake anywhere from 45 - 60 minutes OR until it's nice and golden brown and set in the middle. Place a cake tester in the center to make sure it comes out clean.

Cool and then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Hope you enjoy it!

I have heard of it, but never eaten it. Guess that is going to change because I am now going to have to whip this baby up. It looks really good.

That looks so delicious. Very much comfort food. It sounds like an old-fashioned recipe. Do you know if it is?

My mother made these all the time. My nephews & everybody else in the family loves them. I personally don't care for them. I loved the homemade chocolate pies she made.

Can I invite myself to tea? That pie looks absolutely delicious. Thanks for popping over to my blog today. Just had a quick read of your 'About Us' and was taken back to my childhood when I saw that you have a vintage circular sock machine. My mum and dad had just the same although I never saw any socks coming off it. Wish it was still around as it looked to be a great little machine.

I don't usually eat a lot of sweets but lately I can't keep from them. I really want to make this. Yummy!

Oh my, that looks scrumptious!

My friend gave me a new book this week about pie making southern style. One of the recipes was for a vinegar pie. I just cannot imagine. What do you want to bet it's one of the first recipes I try?
