There is something so divine about a simple buttermilk pie. They're not blow your socks off amazing, but rather delicious in a comforting, unadulterated, smile at yourself kind of way. Don't let the fact that it's made with buttermilk dissuade you from trying it out. The buttermilk gives it only a slight tanginess in the same way cream cheese gives many recipes a tanginess (though this tastes nothing like cream cheese). Give it a shot, you'll be glad you did!
- Some people add 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice to their buttermilk pies. I personally don't think this recipe needs it but go for it if you like.
- The crust should be par-baked so it doesn't shrink too much and become soggy on bottom. Click on link in the ingredient list for instructions on par-baking.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup buttermilk
In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter and both the white and brown sugars. Beat until creamy and smooth. Mix in flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, followed by both eggs, vanilla, salt and nutmeg. Slowly pour buttermilk into mixture while beating. Pour batter into par-baked pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for 50-55 minutes, turning pie around halfway through.
Serve warm or chilled.
