Buttermilk Pie

I tin sympathize surely recipes existence relatively unknown, simply this buttermilk pie is non 1 of them. Not entirely is this slow to make, too beautiful to await at, it’s likewise bursting amongst the sort of bright, tangy flavor that no other custard-style pie tin touch. Like I said inwards the video, this is sort of similar a vanilla custard, meets lemon meringue pie, meets really low-cal cheesecake. Except better.

I’ve never had much problem finding buttermilk, fifty-fifty inwards regular, non-fancy grocery stores, simply depending on where yous alive inwards the world, manifestly that’s non the case. There are many “hacks” for making a substitute, unremarkably using milk too lemon juice, or vinegar, too I’ll permit yous Google those at your leisure, simply I’d last to a greater extent than inclined to endeavor approximately yogurt, thinned out amongst approximately milk.

I intend that would last closer to the tanginess of buttermilk, simply every bit far every bit the recipe “working,” 1 loving cup of whatever type of dairy production should yield similar results. Once your pie is made, it tin last served “as is,” or topped amongst seasonal fruit. I went amongst raspberries, generally for the pictures, simply if yous were going to exercise this for the holidays, approximately persimmons, and/or pomegranate seeds would likewise last really nice. Regardless of how yous serve it, I actually exercise promise yous plow over this a endeavor soon. Enjoy!
