You can’t beat a classic, and by the looks of it, Buttermilk Pies are a big deal here on Tasty Kitchen! There are so many variations of this Southern classic and it was hard to choose where to begin. Cassie had a very well-loved Buttermilk Pie recipe that has received some pretty stellar reviews, so I had to try it.

Here’s what you’ll need for the filling. Now, I’m no pie master, which is why I was so glad I didn’t have to make a crust from scratch. Cassie’s recipe called for using a pre-made crust, which made this process super fast, simple, and still look homemade.

Unroll your pie crust into your pie pan and crimp the edges.

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and salt until combined.

Next, whisk in the melted and cooled butter, followed by the buttermilk and the vanilla.

Lastly, whisk in the eggs and mix until the custard is smooth and creamy.

Pour the mixture into your pie crust and bake for about an hour.

Let the pie cool and then chill in the fridge until you’re ready to eat. It’s really wonderful with fresh spring berries on top. Give this a try this summer. Or, better yet, don’t wait until summer—make it today!

Thank you Cassie for this fantastic recipe. Try more of Cassie’s recipes in her TK Recipe Box, or visit Bake Your Day for more home cooked inspiration, like this Apple Bacon Grilled Cheese and so much more!

I made buttermilk pie for the first time last summer and really enjoyed it. However, I found that it really needed a good 12-16 hours to rest. Before that, although it was set it was SUPER sweet. But with a little more time the sweetness mellowed and wonderful flavor developed.

Moral of the story: make buttermilk pie the day/night BEFORE you want to enjoy it!
