Buttermilk Pie + an Announcement

As a kid growing up, I spent a lot of time at my Grandma's house. I was able to walk there until I was ten and moved farther away. My Grandma is one of my best friends, and I love her dearly. I hope to someday be just like her. I love to cook, and I think that is because of her. I would spend hours with her in her kitchen, just cooking away. This post is for her.

I'm not really a fan of pie. I'm more of a cupcake kind of girl. I mean I don't even like Chocolate Pie. (I know, crazy, right?) There are, however, two pies that I do like, Pecan and Buttermilk. I'll cover the Pecan Pie on a later post, but, today, I'm talking about my favorite, Buttermilk. 
My Grandma is the only person that has ever made Buttermilk Pie for me. She makes it almost every holiday, but I always thought of it as a fall treat. I made it once for Hubby back when we were dating, and he's been hooked ever since.

It's a really simple recipe. Here's what you'll need (Print it Here):
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 good cups of sugar (When I say good, I mean heaping.)
  • 1/2 tsp or less of salt
  • 2 tbsp of self-rising flour
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 pie shells
  • 2/3 cup of buttermilk
  1. Pre-heat oven to 400.
  2. In a mixer, beat the eggs until they are foamy.
  3. Add all of the other ingredients except the buttermilk. Mix well.
  4. Add the buttermilk, and mix again.
  5. Pour the mixture into the pie shells. I use pre-made pie shells, but homemade ones are good too. 
  6. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. 
  7. Cool completely before slicing or storing. Store covered in the refrigerator.

Your crust should be nice and brown, and the top layer of the pie should be a golden color. I personally think the pie gets better the cooler it is, but it's good fresh too. Pour me a glass of milk, and I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, or dessert!

Even if you don't like pie, or custard pie, I would encourage you to try this. It was a staple in my childhood, and I look forward to family gatherings specifically for this. 
Cool weather is upon us, and so is pie season. So, grab a blanket and a slice, and get cozy with comfort food!
