Buttermilk pie is an old-fashioned 1oo-year-old pie that is easy and quick to make. The prep of this vintage pie only takes about 10 minutes because there are only 6 ingredients needed to make this pie. I always get chess pie and buttermilk pie mixed up, but chess pie has a little cornmeal in it, and buttermilk pie is just straightforward for what it is. Whippoorwill Holler tutorial on YouTube shows how this vintage buttermilk pie can be made into one-bowl. I love how this is a simple pie recipe to make because it saves so much time during the holidays. I’m ready to make this vintage buttermilk pie because I love chess pie, and I would try to make this into a chocolate buttermilk pie too. Also, I love how this is a classic recipe that doesn’t have complicated steps or ingredients.
First, in a large mixing bowl, add the beaten eggs, flour, sugar, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla extract and mix.
Next, pour the buttermilk pie mixture into the unbaked pie shell and bake for 40 minutes at 350F. You can bake it for a little longer to create a more golden-brown crust on top.
Overall, I never made my own buttermilk pie and didn’t realize how simple it is to make it. I think this might be a new staple of pie to make during the holidays for me because it looks so moist and buttery. Also, I think it’s funny how she calls it a “Hillbilly Creme Brulee” because it’s such a southern pie to make. This pie is not only made during the holidays but if you’re having a southern meal I think it would be a great dessert to serve.
