BUTTERMILK PIE

Buttermilk Pie is an old-fashioned Southern favorite.

You don’t have to like buttermilk to like this great tasting custard like dessert.  Buttermilk pie is great for the holidays or just any time and so easy to make.  This Buttermilk Pie recipe makes one deep dish or two regular pies.  I used frozen pie crusts but you can make your own or use my recipe for homemade pie crusts.  You can’t go wrong with this pie and I have never served it to anyone who didn’t like it.  This is an old-fashioned, easy recipe your family will love.  This pie is wonderful for any occasion or event and you won’t bring any home. It keeps for several days in the refrigerator and is wonderful with coffee as a dessert or with milk for a snack.

Buttermilk pie is delicious and wonderful with coffee.

1/2 cup butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons or 1 stick, softened

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

One deep dish or two regular pie crusts.  I used frozen pie crusts but you can make your own.

Beat eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla with mixer until well blended.  Add buttermilk,  flour and nutmeg continue mixing about 1 minute. Pour into pie shells.  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.  Enjoy!

  1. I was just wondering how long to u put this in fridge after it cools from cooking? This is my first time making this5 stars

  2. Made own crust: buttermilk pie filling turned out perfect in my deep dish! Hope it cools quickly so I can take to a family gathering! Would love to add a picture but don’t see a spot. Thanks for the recipe…5 stars

      1. I absolutely love your recipes. So glad to see the buttermilk pie recipe. I’ll be making 2 for dessert tomorrow.5 stars

      2. Thank you so much Bertha. So happy to have you on our site and hope you enjoy the pies.

  3. i’been looking for a recipe for buttermilk pie for ten years. i first taste one in texas have been looking and thanks to you i now have it THANK-YOU

  4. I simply love Southern cooking and you have the most fabulious{spelled wrong} recipes, my only problem is I don’t have a printer and have to hand write them. This is my firstcomputer so I am just learning how to wprk it.

  5. This is a easy recipe and makes two pies , and delicious. I sometimes use lemon flavoring though. Lemon makes it good for the springtime. I have made it some at Easter. Its good at anytime though. I imagine you might could use some other flavoring too. Maybe almond or something. Might have to try it someday.5 stars

  6. Cannot beat Buttermilk pie my wife has her mother’s old recipe for it and she has to make several every Holiday because the kid’s all want one to take home too.

  7. Best pie EVER! I’ve eaten it since I was tiny. Every year on Thanksgiving morning, my aunt and I would sneak away and take a slice out of the perfect pie and eat it. Such a great memory. Thank you for sharing with others. 🙂5 stars

  8. this looks ridiculously amazing, i havent been able to stop thinking about it since last night, lol. im going to have to try this

  9. These (buttermilk and chess pies) sound wonderful. How well would they freeze? Also can you use the buttermilk “replacement powder” in these recipes?

    1. Hi Nancy, I have never tried freezing the pies nor have I replaced the buttermilk in the recipe.

    1. Lisa, If you are using a Pillsbury frozen pie crust, I think you need to thaw them out first.

  10. I grew up eating buttermilk pie….Love it !!!! The only difference in the pies my mama made is no flour, no vanilla and no nutmeg… We added cream of tartar.. It give it a little more tang. Ours was really a buttermilk pie….

  11. It may not be low fat or low carb but it is delicious and I will be making one … or two.

  12. Judy, I’m glad you put this up here – it reminded me of Grammy’s transparent pie at the table! Good thing I’ll have something to take to Thanksgiving supper (one of them, at least). Thanks for the reminder! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  13. I was wondering what all I could use buttermilk for… I just remember my Grandpa Ross drinking it, and Grandma warning me and my brother, “You two better stick with the sweet milk.” Thank goodness for your recipes. I’ve been enlightened!
