A classic buttermilk pie always tastes like home. An easy dessert that’s welcomed at summer BBQs and formal dinner parties . With only 8 ingredients, this southern pie is one- of- a -kind easy and delicious!
Perfect for the beginner baker, the filling is incredibly easy and you can opt to buy a premade pie if that’s more your style. If you want to give your own crust a go, the recipe I use is right here (halve it). The hardest part will be waiting for this beautiful pie to cool.
- If you want an even tangier experience, cut the sugar by 1/4 cup.
- It’s imperative that you beat your eggs before adding them to mixing bowl. This makes for a beautifully consistent texture.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons AP flour
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 deep 9 inch pie shell, homemade or store
Preheat your oven to 400. Mix butter, sugar, and molasses together until airy, then add eggs. Combine thoroughly. Beat in vanilla and lemon juice. Sift flour into mixing bowl, then slowly add buttermilk (mixing while pouring). Beat until mixture is clump free.
Pour buttermilk mixture into pie shell and bake at 400 for 10 minutes, then reduce to 350 for 40 minutes (or until pie is a deep golden brown). A knife inserted should come out clean.
