Annie’s Buttermilk Pie
From the kitchen of Ann Watkins.
A delicious custard pie we enjoyed growing up
- 1-10 inch unbaked pie shell chilled
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 3 tbsp. flour
- 3 eggs, separated
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups buttermilk
- ½ cup melted butter
Heat oven to 425 degrees.
Meanwhile, in a bowl mix sugar, flour, and salt. Add egg yolks which have been slightly beaten, buttermilk, melted butter, and vanilla. Blend well.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, fold into the custard mixture. Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake at 425 degrees for 10 mins. then reduce to 325 degrees for 30 mins. or until pie is golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool and then refrigerate before serving.
