Buttermilk Pie

Being the traditional Southern lady that I am, buttermilk pie is one of those staple recipes that I have grown up eating and have made for years.

So simple, so delicious, and just flat out a pie that you need to make for a family dinner, a pot luck, or just cause (which is what I did).

Serve with some fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream, and you are set with this scrumptious buttermilk pie.

Buttermilk Pie

I know how to make a flaky homemade pie crust, but let’s be real, on a pie like this… a homemade pie crust is not necessary. These pre-made crusts are just as good and a million times easier.

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Prepare pie crust in a deep 9-inch pie plate and crimp the edges.

Pie will still be jiggly in the center. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 2 hours before serving, or serve after cooling in the refrigerator. (my preferred method.)

Slice and serve with fresh berries and a dollop of whipped cream.
