Cuisine: American, Southern
Keyword: Buttermilk, Pie


  • 1 9" Prepared Pie crust You can buy or make
  • 3 large Eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups Granulated White Sugar
  • 2 Tbs. All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt
  • 8 Tbs. Unslated Butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup Buttermilk
  • 1-1/2 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
    Beat the eggs, until just foamy. Add sugar, flour and salt and continue to beat.
    Beat in melted butter and mix well. Add buttermilk and vanilla.
  • Pour into unbaked pie crust.
    Bake pie on BOTTOM of oven, for 20 minutes. This browns and crisps the bottom pf the oie crust.
    Move pie to middle rack and bake for another 20-25 minutes. You are looking for the custard to start to set and a thin golden brown crust on top.
  • The custard will still be a little jiggly. It will set as it cools. You can check internal temp if you want. It should be 175°.
    Remove pie from oven and place on rack to cool. You can serve warm of refrigerated. It is delicious cold for breakfast.
    Stor, covered in refrigerator for up to a week.
