My, My, Buttermilk Pie


The verdict:

Make it now. I don’t think you will be sorry.



I did not make the cornmeal crust. That’s a bridge too far in my world. Just use your own favorite pie crust.

And I made just a couple of changes.

  1. I used at least a teaspoon of lemon zest.
  2. I added a pinch of salt to the filling,
  3. I did not make the meringue topping.
  4. It took a little longer to bake than the directions called for. Just bake it till it’s no longer liquidy in the middle.

It’s gonna ‘jiggle’, but it shouldn’t be liquid.

This recipe is from the ‘Farm Journal Pie Cookbook’. One of my most treasured and reliable cookbooks EVER.

Let me know if you give it a try.

My work here is done. :-)
