This is just an old-fashioned chess pie. Best of all, you can't taste the buttermilk, and it's "so rich" :). Time for cooling pie is not included.This was first submitted on May 23, 2006 to RecipeZaar,which was bought out by Food.com.I've decided to post it here on June 1st.2011.

I love this recipe and make it weekly. It is easy to vary the flavorings. Some of the flavorings I use are: 1/4 cup fresh lemon or lime juice along with 3 Tbsp lemon or lime zest; lime along with toasted coconut; split the sugar using brown sugar for half of what is called for or experiment with different extracts. Today I will paint the crust with Nutella and use Hazelnut extract. Of course the original recipe is awesome too and very satisfying.

Tang from the buttermilk, and creamy from the corn meal ! A very nice buttery/vanilla flavor.
