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!

I have to say I'm a little confused with this one..

It was very tasty but it took nearly double the cook time to cook completely? After 40 minutes my pie was 100% raw in the middle and still wasn't fully set after 85 minutes when we just took it out of the oven anyway. Also, it doesn't taste very good warm however it is delicious once refrigerated. My only issue with this is that due to the ridiculously long baking time, my crust was a little dry and because we had to refrigerate overnight the crust was a tiny bit stale/second day taste.

Not sure if I'll make again.

Made two pies and added coconut to the second. They were both excellent and practically "inhaled" at potluck. Is definately on my "make again" list.

2 hours ago I was looking for something to do for a quick desert and boy was this a great choice. I added an extra egg, and the mixture filled two 9 inch store bought pastry shells. We haven't tried the plain one yet but the second one I sprinkled the top with raisins and cinnamon before it hit the oven and it was a hit. This is one of the lightest deserts I have made in ages and will be a regular from now on.

I have this very same recipe in an old cookbook of mine from 1947.

Very tasty! I was at a friend's house, and they didn't have an electric egg beater, so I did everything like the recipe, but just added the whole eggs in step 2, and skipped step 5. For those who knows about Trader Joe's, their pie crust is very close to home made, which I used for this recipe. Everyone who were skeptical loved it after one bite.
