Hope you've had a great week! I am in major countdown mode...in just 8 days I will be off for Spring Break! Woohoo!
As y'all know, last week was Bryce's birthday and he requested that I make him a buttermilk pie. I had never heard of the dessert, but my research showed that it is actually a very Southern dish. Having never made it before, I wanted to be sure to find a good recipe and ultimately found two that sounded tasty, so I decided to combine them into my own unique recipe. We really enjoyed the pie. It was light and a custard-like with hints of lemon and nutmeg.
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 tbs all-purpose flour
1 stick melted butter, slightly cooled
1 cup buttermilk
1 tbs fresh lemon juice
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 9-inch pie shell
1/4 cup seedless strawberry preserves
1/2 tbs orange liqueur (I used Patron)
Have you ever had buttermilk pie before?
What are your favorite Southern desserts?
Have a great day!
