My grandmother was one of those wonderful cooks who cooked with a handful of this and a pinch of that. Since her recipes were not written down, when she passed away we lost many of our favorites. It's just not Christmas without Buttermilk Pie so I searched until I found a recipe that was almost as good. It's pretty darn close!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350.
  2. Combine flour, sugar and salt.
  3. Melt butter.
  4. Add eggs to the butter and beat slightly with mixer.
  5. Add buttermilk and continue to beat.
  6. Add vanilla and the sugar mixture and blend.
  7. Pour into pie shells and bake for an hour until the pie is firm from center to edge and brown.
  8. The edges tend to brown pretty quickly so I cover them with foil after they reach the desired color to keep them from getting too dark.
