How to Make Buttermilk Pie
- Prepare pie crust, according to package or recipe directions. Cool completely on a wire rack.
- Reduce oven temperature to 350. Combine the sugar, flour, and nutmeg in a large mixing bowl. With a mixer at medium speed, beat in the eggs until smooth. Beat in the buttermilk, butter, and vanilla to blend. Pour mixture into the pre-baked pastry shell, then sprinkle the top with the coconut.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until center is just set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve at room temperature or chilled. Pie will last a few days in the refrigerator if it's not gobbled up the first time it's served.
