Top Review by desertryder

Very nice old fashioned custard type pie. I added an extra egg and alittle extra buttermilk because my pie dish was extra deep. (photo submitted) and it turned out perfect. I also added alittle Watkins Lemon Extract for extra flavor. It was a big hit at our pot luck.. And I also want to ad, I did get to bring some home from that potluck leftover and overnight in the fridge, the flavors and texture of the pie intensified and was even better. Next time I make this pie, I will make it a day early and refridgerate it over night... WONDERFUL! YUM!
