Buttermilk Pie

I skipped last week's French Friday with Dorie (shame on me!) and instead made this buttermilk pie. I would have made the Caramel Semolina Cake, which just wasn't appealing to me at the time. I do hope to try it someday though, as it does sounds good! Ever since I saw this pie on Joy the Baker, it's been in the back of my mind. I needed to find out what it tasted like! I finally made it last Friday, and was quite impressed! I think the blackberry sauce really makes complements the simple filling. I made half a batch of both the crust and the filling and used a 6 inch spring form. I had some crust left over, but the filling fit perfectly. I love Joy the Baker, she makes me extremely happy =). You can find the recipe here.


  1. Monica,the piece of Buttermilk Pie that you sent home with Shanna was delicious. I don't know if I've ever had it before, but I'd like to try it myself now that I've tasted it. I have a feeling that it's kind of a pioneer recipe, maybe something that Laura Ingles Wilder might have talked about Alonzo eating as a boy? According to the Farmer Boy book, he really enjoyed his food!!

  2. Wow. Buttermilk pie. I would have never thought of that - but I am intrigued by it now... I am guessing the tang of the buttermilk would come across nicely - especially with a berry sauce. Yum

  3. How funny! I saw this recipe on Joy the Baker and am planning on making it today. I accidentally bought buttermilk thinking I needed it for a recipe for Thanksgiving...and didn't. This looks like the perfect use for my buttermilk. I'l glad you found it delicious!
