I haven’t made buttermilk pie in for.e.ver. (<–read that like Sandlot) It seems like I end up with leftover buttermilk often. It’s just a super useful ingredient, so I buy it. Then I don’t use all of it, so I find things to make with buttermilk for fun. I actually really love buttermilk pie, it’s a custard type pie. And this time I tried sweetening it with honey.
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey (I used this kind, it’s amazing!)
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk the eggs with the sugar and honey. Now stir in the other ingredients and pour into your favorite pie crust (mine’s store bought—hence the “halfway homemade”). Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes until the sides are golden brown and the pie is set (it will still have a slight jiggle in the center). Allow to fully cool before serving.
This pie is perfect topped with fresh whipped cream (or you can add fresh fruit) and a cute pie dish and pretty cloth napkins always makes a yummy pie look its best. We’ve got lots of delicious pie recipes in our archives or this pie book would be a great gift for yourself or another baker friend. Happy pie making! xo. Emma
