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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

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

  20. Add a cup of coconut !!!!!!!!

  21. Just took this out of the oven , can’t wait to try it …

  22. I love this pie….do u have to thaw your pie crust before baking?

  23. 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….

  24. Is this called Chess pie also, if so I love it.

  25. Richard L Walker says:

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

  26. 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!

  27. 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!
