Recipe: Buttermilk Pie (makes 2 pies)

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’. 

Y’all Enjoy!

    This looks so easy. Can’t wait to try it. I remember hearing of this pie when I was younger, but I’ve never made one. Having company this weekend and may try it out on them.

    Have you ever heard of Impossible Pie? My mom used to make them and as I recall it must be similar to this Buttermilk Pie recipe. Mom said the cool thing about Impossible Pie was that you could change the flavor simply by adding a teaspoon of flavoring extract. Sometimes it would be lemon, sometimes coconut, sometimes pineapple or rum… Thoughts?

    I’m sure that would work (replacing the vanilla with other flavors).
