Classic Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk pie is a classic, traditional pie in the
 south. It often shows up at Thanksgiving and
 Christmas dessert tables.  
This custard pie mixes together quickly 
and it doesn't taste like buttermilk.
 Melt the butter in a glass bowl for 1 minute in 
the microwave. Whisk in the sugar, then eggs, 
 Whisk in the remaining ingredients.
 Pour into unbaked pie crust.
I used my easy-as-pie crust recipe.
 Bake until golden and set.
 It reminds me of creme brulee.

Buttermilk Pie
1 9" unbaked pie crust
1 stick butter
1 to 1/1/2 C sugar
3 XL eggs
1 C buttermilk
3 T flour
1 t vanilla
pinch salt
Melt the butter in a glass bowl
in the microwave for 1 minute. 
Add the sugar; 1-/1/4 to 1-1/2 C
 (depending on how sweet you want it)
Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, flour, salt
and vanilla. Pour into the unbaked pie
crust and bake @350º until the filling
is puffed and set and golden.
About 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack
for 1 hour. Cover and chill 2 hours before 
serving.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Then refrigerate to store.

tip: * For a lemon flavored buttermilk pie
          add 1-3T lemon juice.
      * For a cinnamon flavored buttermilk pie
         add 1/2t cinnamon and 1/4 t nutmeg
