REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Traditional pie like I grew up with! Brought back memories. Doesn't try to change what's worked for years and is always a favorite.

A good and very southern buttermilk pie. One of the better ones I've tried in my years.

I made 1 pie first -my husband devoured it so I made 3 more all of my guests LOVED it. Made it for a new years day party. I added more buttermilk and 1 more egg to make it less sweet. Also baked it for 15 minutes more - and added baking pan to catch the overflow. I added lemon and pecans to one. I like it cold and hubby likes it hot -this one is definitely a keeper!
