Buttermilk pie always intrigued me. Was it tart? Sour? Thick? For some reason, I never got around to making one. Then, I started making a "pie of the week". I put the names of pies that I always wanted to bake but never did into a small container .Then, once a week, I would select a pie to make. Buttermilk pie, of course, was one of the entries.
When I finally selected buttermilk, I was thrilled with how easy the pie was to make. Whisk a few ingredients together, pour the filling into an unbaked pie crust and that's it!
After the pie had baked and cooled, I nervously took a bite. I had waited so long to try this pie, I worried that I might not like it. After one bit, I realized, it wasn't anything like I had expected. In my mind's eye, I envisioned the cake being thick, almost like a cheesecake. I was wrong! The filling is creamy and lemony. It reminded me slightly of a lemon bar filling. I loved it!
I'm so happy I tried the pie. Here's the recipe. I hope you give it a try. . . . (to read the remainder of this article, please log in below.)
