Buttermilk Pie

So I came across this recipe here and wanted to prove to myself that I can make something as pretty as what I see other people making...  and now I want to show you that I did!
I made this for my grandma's birthday that I quickly mentioned here.



  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted (half a stick)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
  • 1 cup cold, heavy whipping cream
  • 20-30 raspberries (or half as many strawberries, halved)
  • A handful of blueberries


1 Preheat oven to 325°F. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs, then beat in the sugar and lemon zest until well combined. Beat in the flour and melted butter. Beat in the vanilla and buttermilk.

2 Pour filling batter into an uncooked pie shell (frozen is fine).  Note: Take care that this doesn't happen to you; I bought frozen pie crusts, probably should have bought the 'deep dish' pie crust.  The batter spilled over in both of my pies (the only advantage was giving the crust a shiny golden appearance)

Bake at 325°F for approximately 50 minutes, or until the center of the custard has just set (can still be a little wiggly). Remove from oven and let cool. The custard may puff up a bit in the oven; it will deflate as it cools.

3 Whip the chilled cream until it holds stiff peaks.

Once the pie has cooled to room temperature, spread the whipping cream over the top of the pie. 

Arrange the raspberries and blueberries in a decorative pattern on top of the whipping cream.

Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve.

Makes 8 serving pieces.

Most important, don't forget to have a cocktail (I picked Weed and Lemonade)
Happy Baking!

I knew I shouldn't have read this till after I'd eaten something!

Dang, you're good!

Weed? is that a euphemism?

Ang said...

Weed is 'Jeremiah Weed' (sweet tea flavored vodka)... probably my favorite thing to drink in the summer :)

That looks like it should be in a magazine!

This post is a sign to me....I had never heard of buttermilk pie until a few days ago and now here you are posting the recipe and making me drool!
