Buttermilk Pie

September 7, 2008

I have no idea why, but this is quite possibly my favorite dessert.  It’s ridiculously easy and is almost universally drooled over. I’m making it today in Austin and then going back to New Braunfels after eating one slice.  Its probably best to maintain some distance between yourself and this pie.

Yeah, it is a store bought pie crust.  What are you gonna do about it?

1/2 C FLOUR
3 3/4 C SUGAR GRANULATED
1 TEASPOON SALT
6 EGGS
2 TEASPOONS VANILLA
1 C BUTTER MELTED
1 C BUTTERMILK
Mix dry ingredients. Add yolks, melted butter, vanilla, and buttermilk.  Beat the whites with a fork until frothy.  Don’t  over beat!  Fold egg whites into custard mixture.  Pour into 2 unbaked pie shells and bake at 350 until golden and mostly set.  They’ll jiggle a bit in the middle, but not much.  My mom’s recipe claims they cook in 30 minutes. I’ve never seen them set up in under 45 and its usually more like an hour.
