Shelia's notes for this recipe:
My sister made a delicious Buttermilk Pie. She has long passed, however, her pie will live on.

Personalize This


Combine sugar and butter until well blended. Add the eggs and mix well.

Add the flour and salt and blend.

Add buttermilk and the vanilla and stir until well mixed.

Pour into 9 inch or larger pie shells and bake at 350 degrees until the pie no longer jiggles in the middle. I bake mine for 45 minutes, however, depending on your oven it may take up to 30 minutes longer. Cool before cutting.

Note: This can be made with a mixer and is also easy to do without one.

Stephanie, though there are many recipe's for buttermilk pie this recipe is probably quite common, however, it was lost to us after my sister's death and we found it just recently, so it is quite unique to our family. It is by far better than a lot of buttermilk pie recipe's I have found in the past.

I just posted a Chocolate Buttermilk Pie as well, using this same recipe with the addition of chocolate. It is decadent. You might want to try it sometime as well.
