This is a very old Southern recipe. It’s a very sweet, rich pie which cannot be described as anything but marvelous. This is not my personal recipe but was passed to me by my grandmother and from her grandmother and so on and so forth.
Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pie is a classic, traditional southern pie. It’s simple and made from regular ingredients, but it tastes so good. Buttermilk Pie is creamy, sweet heaven. It’s one of my very favorite pies.
Old-Fashioned Buttermilk Pie has a super smooth, custard-like filling that is really sweet.
The filling only takes about 5 minutes to make and consists of eggs, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, flour for thickening, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and nutmeg for flavor.
½ cup of buttermilk
1 ¾ cups of sugar
2 large eggs.
3 tbsps of flour
A pinch of salt
1 stick of butter
1 tsp of vanilla
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until blended then pour the mixture in an unbaked 9 inch pie shell.
Sprinkle the top with some nutmeg then bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven to 400 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 45 minutes.
Let set and cool completely before serving.
