Buttermilk Pie is a vintage recipe that has been around for ages having come from the United Kingdom it is a very southern dish and similar to chess pie. Some folks think they are the same but the difference is that chess pie has a little cornmeal in it.
This pie is baked in a pie crust and has a sweet custard texture. I know some folks will see the word buttermilk and start turning up their noses but before you do think about how great buttermilk pancakes or buttermilk biscuits are. Yep, buttermilk makes things better. The pie doesn’t taste like buttermilk, it is actually very sweet as it has a lot of sugar in it. I know now some won’t want it because of the sugar.
For anyone that is still here. Of course its sweet, it is pie after all. There are variations and I have had all of them at some point. Betty uses vanilla in hers, you can use a little lemon juice too or a little more and make it really taste like lemon, You can use nutmeg as she says in the video or you can use cinnamon. whichever way you make it is really good. Well you would know that already, recipes don’t stay popular over decades if they are delicious. So the next time you have a hankering for pie or need a special dessert give this buttermilk pie a try. I am pretty sure you will love it.
