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.

  1. I love this type of simple pie (and that cookbook)! I feel like I don't make them nearly enough. These look so great! I may end up with a baked Sunday afternoon today. :)

  2. We made a version of this pie a few weeks ago. It was really nice. Sweet, but not nearly as sweet as chess pie (which I love, but seriously, eating that pie can cause heart racing and manic episodes!).

  7. Your little pies are so cute! I have never had chess pie, though I know I have at least a couple books with recipes for it - I'll have to check it out.

  9. Adorable! I love your baby pies-- I have the exact same pie dishes and thought about it, but I went with the full-sized pie for my first try. Good to know it works with little ones too. :)
