REALLY AN OUTSTANDING PIE! I had never had or made buttermilk pie, so this was a whole new ~ & wonderful ~ experience for me! We really enjoyed the taste of this dessert, & since it was so sweet, I was determined to get 10 servings from the pie! Didn't have fresh strawberries, though, so used frozen ones for the sauce! Thanks so much for another keeper recipe, & for a totally new taste treat! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars tag game]
