This is a very old recipe and honestly, I have no idea how far back it goes in my mother’s family. I do know that my great-grandmother use to make it. Very simple ingredients. Probably because they kept those ingredients on-hand most of the time and could make a simple pie with little expense. I’ve made it and it is very creamy and custard like. I’ve often wondered if chocolate could be added, but I haven’t tried it…… yet. But, I will! So, if you’re looking for a simple old-fashioned pie – give this a try sometime.
Buttermilk Pie (2 pies)
3 cups sugar
5 Tablespoons flour
3/4 cup buttermilk
5 eggs, beaten
1 stick margarine or use butter (I prefer butter)
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Mix for 2 to 3 minutes at high speed with mixer. Pour into 2 unbaked pie shells and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until ‘set’.
