Buttermilk Pie

an old-fashion Southern dessert

Buttermilk pie is an old Southern food favorite, one of the great southern desserts. It doesn’t taste like buttermilk. Instead, it tastes a lot like chess pie, only sweeter. It’s also similar to egg custard pie, but buttermilk pie has a stiffer consistency. Egg custard pie will get runny if you don’t cook it for the exact amount of time it should be cooked, but this buttermilk pie recipe has never failed me. It turns out perfect every time.
