Buttermilk Pie – flies in the buttermilk, shoo – fly – shoo

chess_pieEvery 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

3 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla

dash nutmeg

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!
