Buttermilk Pie

IMG_9571
Buttermilk Pie has a tangy flavor and is a fairly simple to make.

My daughter, Marissa, posted on Facebook that she had the best pie ever in a restaurant in Alabama and it was Buttermilk Pie. After that emphatic statement, I definitely had to track down a buttermilk pie recipe and try it out. Buttermilk pie is southern staple. Buttermilk pie is supposed to be even more popular than pumpkin pie in Texas. That seems strange but it is Texas. The pie originated in England and was carried across the ocean by immigrants who ended up in the South. Buttermilk pie is a custard pie-so it is similar to pumpkin pie in texture, but has a tangy tart flavor.

Ingredients
3 eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup butter melted and cooled
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 9-inch pie crust unbaked

Directions
Whisk together eggs, and sugar in a large bowl
Whisk in remaining ingredients until smooth
Pour into prepared pie crust
Bake at 400° oven for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350° continue to bake for 40 to 45 minutes. Tooth pick stuck in the middle should come out clean.
