If you love Buttermilk Pie and you love chocolate then you will love this pie. The recipe for the Buttermilk Pie alone is wonderful, however, the addition of chocolate to this recipe is…well, there just is not enough adjectives to describe it. You will have to try it yourself, and, watch out. Have you a group of witnesses surrounding you, or, you will eat the WHOLE Pie.
After 10 years I have just found my sister Karen's Buttermilk Pie Recipe. I have been wanting to make a Chocolate Buttermilk Pie for a long time and so I messed around with chocolate and finally came up with a good recipe.
Oh my, this is so creamy! One batch makes two pies... and we couldn't get enough.

My older sister Karen always made the Buttermilk Pie for our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, and though I’m not sure where she got her recipe, I am sure that it was the best Buttermilk Pie that anyone in our family ever made, yes, even better than mine. My beloved sister passed away in 1999 a few days after Christmas. The following year I decided to make her Buttermilk Pie in honor of her. I contacted family members and began a search for her recipe. To my dismay no one had it. My mother said my sister had written down the recipe for her, however, after searching she could not find it either. Each year I make a buttermilk pie from recipe’s I have found in books and on line and none of them tasted the same. I am happy to say that while looking through old recipes of my mother’s, after 13 years, I found my sister’s handwritten recipe in time to bake it for Thanksgiving and my family got to enjoy a piece of Karen’s Buttermilk Pie as we reminisced about her and holidays past.
