Buttermilk Pie

  • Author: Marsha



1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

3 large eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup buttermilk

1 9-inch unbaked pie crust


Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C).


Prepare the Pie Crust: Place the unbaked pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish. You can crimp the edges for a decorative look if desired. Set aside.


Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the granulated sugar and flour. Mix well.


Add Wet Ingredients: Beat in the melted butter until the mixture is smooth. Then, one at a time, beat in the eggs, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Stir in the vanilla extract.


Add Buttermilk: Slowly pour in the buttermilk while stirring, and mix until all ingredients are well combined.


Fill the Pie Crust: Pour the buttermilk mixture into the prepared pie crust.


Bake: Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the center is set and the top is lightly browned. You can check the doneness by inserting a knife into the center of the pie; if it comes out clean, the pie is done.


Cool and Serve: Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool on a wire rack for about 1-2 hours. Once cooled, you can refrigerate it for an additional 1-2 hours for best results. Slice and serve!


The pie filling will puff up during baking but will settle as it cools.

You can add a sprinkle of nutmeg or lemon zest to the filling for additional flavor.

Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for added indulgence.
