Buttermilk Pie Recipe

Yes. I might have had a bite of pie for breakfast.

There is no law against it. Besides, it contains butter and eggs: The breakfast of champions.

And thanks be, there is no law against that flaky crust. That easy, beautiful flaky crust. Let’s all just pledge now to never, ever, ever, ever buy pre-made pie crust. Please. All together:

I pledge I will never, ever, ever, ever buy pre-made pie crust.

Buttermilk Pie

No Roll Pie Crust

1 1/2 cups flour * 2 tablespoons sugar * 1/2 teaspoon salt * 1 tablespoon milk * 1/2 cup oil

Mix together in a pie plate with a fork then press out with your fingers. Yes, easy.

Buttermilk Filling

1/4 cup flour * 1/2 cup butter, melted * 1/2 cup buttermilk * 1 1/2 cups sugar * 1/2 teaspoon vanilla * 3 eggs

Mix all ingredients thoroughly and pour in shell. Bake at 350 degrees for up to one hour. Watch for the jiggle in the middle. Use a knife to test. When comes out clean pull it out of the oven. Don’t overcook!
