Lisa and I like the buttermilk pie filling to be flavorful, creamy not clear, and solid throughout the pie with no holes or pckets. Some add nutmeg.....some don't. We like the nutmeg as does my family.

Probably should have done this before the holidays but oh will be here for Easter, family reunions and Sunday potluck lunches until the next holiday season. Enjoy

Lisa’s Homemade Buttermilk Pie

*makes two pies

•3.5 cups sugar
•6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
•6 eggs
•2 cups buttermilk (real preferred but low fat is OK)
•2 sticks of real butter, melted
•4 teaspoons vanilla extract
•2 unbaked deep dish 9-inch pie shells

*Nutmeg after 30 minutes at 375 (optional)

*18” HD aluminum foil for tenting

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine all ingredients in large bowl. Mix very well with Kitchenaid or hand mixer. Pour into 2 unbaked deep dish pie shells.

Set on cookie sheet (no airbake stuff). Bake 30 minutes at 375°F.

Check…sprinkle nutmeg lightly on the top (optional)….

Tent with foil to protect crust and top. HD foil folded over twice and tented. Do not let it touch pie filling. Bake for another 20 minutes.
190-200 deg in center. Pull and let cool. Filling will settle as the pie cools.

Give one slice to your guests and save the second pie for yourself

That is the EXACT recipe my bride uses.....BEST PIE OUT THERE. Her dewberry pie is close but the buttermilk wins out
