Every time I make this pie I think of one of my favorite movies Meet Me In St. Louis with Judy Garland.
When farms used to churn their own butter every two or three days, there was a lot of buttermilk left over, and they made pies with the buttermilk. This is a super easy pie to make – so few ingredients.
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup butter
3 tablespoons flour, heaping
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 9-inch pie crust, unbaked
Cream sugar and butter, add flour and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time until well blended. Mix in buttermilk, vanilla and nutmeg. Pour into a pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for 45 – 60 minutes or until browned and set. It can’t get much easier than that!
