Baked Sunday Mornings - Buttermilk Pie (with a hint of Maple Syrup)
I don't think I had heard of Buttermilk Pie before seeing it in Baked Explorations. But it sounded an awful lot like one of my favorite pies ever, Chess Pie, so I anticipated liking it. But I didn't like it, I loved it.
Buttermilk Pie is baking at its most rustic. Flaky pie dough is filled with a simple custard flavored with, of all things, buttermilk. Maple syrup is the final addition and adds that earthy sweetness that only maple syrup can.
The Baked boys warn that this pie won't win any beauty contests. A showstopper it's not. Its beauty lies in its simplicity.
The recipe can be found at Baked Sunday Mornings.
