This is an old family recipe. I have seen this or a similar pie called Chess Pie.

I find this pie creamy and refreshing. Its not super-sweet like many pies and makes a nice spring or summer dessert.

How to Make Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

    Line a 9 inch pie plate with pastry. Trim, seal and flute edges. Set aside.

    In one large bowl, combine the sugar, flour and salt.

    In another large bowl, beat the buttermilk, eggs, butter, lemon juice, lemon peel and vanilla. Add to sugar mixture and mix well. Pour into crust. Sprinkle with nutmeg.
  • 2Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 325 degrees and bake 40-45 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.
  • 3Note: I like to cover the edges of the pie crust with foil to keep them from becoming too dark.
