Lot of lemon going on in this category these days.
Well, I was dying to try buttermilk pie, and my mom loves lemon, so I made this version for Mother's Day.
The good news is that it tasted verrrrrrry lemony and verrrrrrrry delicious. The bad news is that I now really want to taste plain buttermilk pie.
What a lovely consistency this pie is!
I grated nutmeg on top, but I'd like to have a better presentation. You think maybe lemon slices in the middle or a sprig of mint, or both?
