TNT Lemon Buttermilk Pie

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?

Lemon Buttermilk Pie

INGREDIENTS:
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • grated peel of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 baked 9-inch pie shell
  • cinnamon, optional
PREPARATION:
In a large mixing bowl beat eggs and sugar until light and lemon-colored. Beat in flour, then buttermilk, melted butter, lemon peel, lemon juice, and vanilla. Pour mixture into pie shell. If desired, sprinkle top lightly with cinnamon.

Bake in a 375° oven for 25 minutes, or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool on rack.

What about candied lemon peel? I bet you could make it look very pretty and it would stay with the theme.....LEMON.

Here are 2 different pecan pies that I have made numerous times over the years.

Buttermilk Pecan Pie 9" unbaked pie shell
Mix together well:
1/2 C butter... melted
2 C sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 eggs
3 TBS flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 C buttermilk
Sprinkle 1 C pecans over pie shell. Pour filling over.
Makes a lot of filling so use 1 1/2 C pecans for 10' pie.
Bake at 300 for 1 1/2 hours

Pecan chess pie
Mix together well:
1 C brown sugar
1/2 C white sugar
1 TBS flour
3 eggs
2 TBS cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 C melted butter
1 1/2 C pecans
9" unbaked pie shell
Bake 375 for 45 min.
