Old Kentucky Buttermilk Pie

Jenny Anderson

PIONEER PLATE: Among some of the specialty recipes found in the south is this delightful rendition of the buttermilk pie. It’s an easy recipe with a rich, down-home goodness.

4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp. flour
4 tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 tbsp. lemon juice
Grated rind of 1 lemon
1 1/2 cup buttermilk (churned buttermilk is best)
1 pie shell, baked but not browned

Beat eggs and sugar together until light and lemon colored. Add flour and beat some more. Mix the butter, vanilla, lemon juice, lemon rind and the buttermilk, then add it to the egg mixture, pour into the pie shell. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-30 min. Over baking makes it tough.
