Pie #16 – Buttermilk Pie

After last weeks unfortunate savory treat (which surprisingly the kids liked), I decided to make another sweet desert pie. On this lazy Sunday of daylight savings, it’ll be buttermilk pie. This is probably the easiest one I’ve made so far. No technique, just mix it up. This one comes from blogspot.

The crust!:

1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell (didn’t feel like doing scratch today so I store-bought a graham cracker crust)

The filling!:

2 cups sugar

1 stick butter, room temperature

4 tbsp. flour

3 eggs, slightly beaten (because some level of effort is needed)

1 cup buttermilk

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, blend the butter, flour and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla extract and buttermilk. Pour into the unbaked pie shell and bake for one hour at 325 degrees or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool and serve.

I took this to some friends house for their 5 year olds birthday party and they were happy with the way it came out. It has a slight crunch off the top and then a nice gooey sweetness. The graham cracker crust adds to the texture in a very good way. It beats white cake with buttermilk frosting.
