Buttermilk Pie

At the crossroads about 6 miles from the Ranch gate we have the sweetest little cafe.  Two awesome ladies recently remodeled an old Cotton Gin office, set up a kitchen, threw in some tables and now they grill up the best foodies and fun!   It's one of our favorite places to grab a great homemade hamburger, a homestyle breakfast (fresh eggs, of course) and the special of the day (BBQ chicken, pork chops etc)     Outside is a "smoker" where you can find and smell ribs, pork chops or a few chickens cooking.   
 They also sell fresh picked veggies from their garden and even if they are closed, you can stop by and pick out your produce and pay the next time you drop in.  
Our first question when we walk in the door is, "What's for dessert?".   The dessert is always wonderful and you better get there early and order it first or you might miss out.  
My very favorite dessert is their Buttermilk Pie!!   I have never even heard of buttermilk pie before this!   Now I can't live without it!  
Oh Buttermilk Pie, where have you been my whole life?
I have tried to match these ladies' recipe and this is really great, probably not as good as theirs but really really great!
Don't delay, make this baby today!

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour

4. Add next 5 ingredients and blend well.
5. Pour into pie crust.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes or until almost set, may have to shield edges of pie crust using a aluminum tent to prevent over-browning.

  1. I am so glad that you like the Buttermilk Pie. I have a recipe from the farm in VA that my relatives have been making for a 100 years. Every time I make it everyone wants the recipe. When I go and visit my son he wants his very own Buttermilk Pie. Aren't they great. So glad that you like it.
    Have a great week and that little restaurant sounds so good.

  2. This sounds delicious, Evelyn ! Very much the same as our traditional milk tart, but we use milk and give it a topping of cinnamon sugar :-) Must try yours !

  3. Those kinds of places always have the best food! :) I will have to try this soon!

  4. What size pie pan.. 8 9 or 10
