Buttermilk & Pie, Oh My!!!
Updated: Mar 28, 2019
Thinking about old, old recipes from years ago, a buttermilk pie comes to mind. My granny made them all the time. When people used to milk cows at home they had plenty of buttermilk, and a couple of their favorite things to make from it was either corn bread or pie. I still use buttermilk in my cornbread, but "Oh my lands," do I love me a buttermilk pie. every now and then.
I've given it a little "Country Bling" twist to bring it back to life after all these years. It will make you an awesome dessert for Thanksgiving and would be a good tradition to start making every year.
We all have memories of growing up and we must pass those on to all the youngins in our families. Cause as my aunt says " It's all about making memories"--and I have always tried to live by that. "Punkin’ Spiced Buttermilk Pie" will surely make great memories with your families and friends. From it's tangy ,buttermilk custard-like texture to the warm, toasty spices, "It'll make y'all slap your punkin' and do a dance."
