    Susie in Texas's Note:

    This pie is a delicious variation from the usual pecan pie made with syrup. The texture is more like a custard. For those who think regular pecan pie is too sweet or too rich, this recipe might be more to your liking.

      Very yummy. Troy made the first one with regular cream instead of buttermilk -- guess the thought all things that come in quart containers are buttermilk, oops. We had enough crusts and pecans to make another according to recipe, though. Funny thing is that a fair number of folks preferred the mistake! I would love to try this again with a few candied pecan halves on top or more chunky style, missed the chunks a bit.

      Oh, Susie, you have a true five-star recipe with this one! Combining my husbnd's love of pecans and mine of anything cooked with buttermilk, this will get made often in our home. I didn't change a thing and do like the fact that it uses ingredients I always have on hand....pecans in the freezer and buttermilk in the refrigerator. Good for you!

      This recipe I made for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful. We love pecan pie, but it is always so sweet and we love buttermilk pie as well. I can honestly say we will never serve a buttermilk or pecan pie ever again, we are sticking with this recipe. This recipe was so easy even for someone who is not experienced in baking.
