Southern Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk Pie is an old fashioned southern style custard pie with a lightly brown, crispy-sugary topping.      
When Simply Suppers first arrived on my doorstep, I did what I usually do when I get my hands on a new cookbook. I do a quick glance and flip through the pages, so this time was no different. As I was thumbing through the cookbook and I booked marked a few of my favorites. This Buttermilk Pie was at the top of my to bake list. 

The photo's alone looked so delicious that, I knew immediately that this was a cookbook that I was going to love. The title says its all Simply Suppers "Easy Comfort Food your Whole Family will Love.  

The recipes in this cookbook are all comfort food recipes that remind you of home. I love simple southern pies and you can't get any simpler than a buttermilk pie, so I couldn't wait to make it!  A good buttermilk pie should be firm on the inside and lightly brown and crispy on the top.

This recipe is simple to make and calls for simple ingredients. You can use store-bought pie crust or use a homemade pie crust recipe. It's all up to you. I hope y'all will give this recipe because I just know your going to love it. 





Southern Buttermilk Pie

Ingredients:
1 - 9 inch pie crust 
1  1/2 - cups sugar
3 - tablespoons flour
1 - cup well shaken buttermilk
1 - tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 - tablespoons vanilla extract
2 - large eggs, room temperature 
1/2 - cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 415 degrees. Place the pie crust in a deep dish pie pan and flute the edges. 

If desired use store bought pie crust. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the sugar, flour, buttermilk, lemon juice, vanilla., eggs and melted butter. 

Bake the pie crust for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove the pie crust from the oven and pour the filling into the warm crust. Return the pie to the oven and bake until warmed, about 10 minutes. 

Then without opening the door , reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake until set, about 40 minutes. If the crust begin to brown to quickly add foil around the crust edges. 

Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Serve at room temperature.

servings: 6-8

I have two very favorite comfort foods and many other just plain favorites. The first is my homemade Potato Soup for which there is no recipe because I change it up a little bit every time depending on what is in the fridge. The second is Riviera (Las Vegas) Rice Pudding. The recipe for this was given on an old Phil Donahue Show and was made by a chef at the Riviera in Las Vegas. It is so wonderfully smooth and creamy and just lightly sweetened. I don't cook much now because I have been quite ill. I subscribe to your blog so that I can print your great recipes for my daughter in hopes that she will make them for me. She loves your recipe for the Quick and Easy Pancake Mix and uses it daily. Personally, I agree with you that I, too, enjoy the recipe for The Perfect Pancake. Ummmm, so delicious. I also enjoy your Easy Peasy Chicken Legs. Thanks for the wonderful cook you are and for sharing your recipes with us.

My favorite comfort food is dessert...chocolate chip cookies and pecan pie to be exact.
Although my boys never turn down dessert, they like "macaroni and gravy" or to the rest of us spagetti and sauce.
I hope we get some killer recipes out of this book. That soup you posted earlier this week was AWESOME!!!

My favorite comfort food is mashed potatoes and brown gravy combined with sweet corn. Ooooooh, I loved this since I was, well, old enough to remember. I adore this combination. Another one is dipping french fries in a vanilla milkshake. I don't eat these things that often, but when I'm feeling blue -- these foods stick to my thighs like super glue. An ooey, gooey, yummy glue!
