Southern Buttermilk Pie
If you’ve never tried Buttermilk Pie before, you’re missing out! There’s all sorts of delicious pie recipes out there- apple pie, pumpkin pie, cream pie- but Southern Buttermilk Pie rarely seems to come up. Frankly, I’m kind of upset- this delicious Southern pie recipe is almost like a rustic, country creme brulee!
Like creme brulee, our Buttermilk Pie recipe here hinges on eggs, sugar, and dairy. Instead of a heavy cream, however, this pie uses buttermilk, which- with some added lemon juice- gives the whole thing a delicious citrus twang. Add in a little bit of vanilla extract and a subtle touch of nutmeg and you’ve got an amazing, well-rounded dessert that’s certain to please!

Ingredients for Old Fashioned Pie
Pie Crust – This recipe is for a 9-inch pie crust. Use store-bought or Homemade Pie Crust.
Eggs – We used 2 whole eggs and 1 yolk.
How to make our Southern Pie Recipe
Start this recipe off by getting our pie filling made. For that, first crack your eggs into a mixing bowl with your granulated sugar. Whisk those together until mixed.
Once those you’ve mixed those, you can start adding all your other ingredients. Whisk all those together until you get a consistent pie filling.
Before we get our filling poured into our pie crust, we need to give it a quick docking first. To do that, just give it a thorough poking with a fork, making all sorts of tiny holes in the bottom of the crust.
After you’ve docked your crust, you can start pouring in your pie filling. Fill your pie crust generously and maybe give it a few taps on the counter to knock any air bubbles out.
All that’s left is to get our pie baked. For that, we’re going to first bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. After that, knock the temperature down to 350 degrees and let it cook until the top has browned and it no longer jiggles when shaken. This should take around 45 minutes, but keep an eye on it! Once it’s finished baking, turn off the oven, and allow to slowly come down in temperature.
