After making the Chocolate-Coconut Pound Cake, I was left with an item I (a) don’t use a lot and (b) don’t like a lot. Buttermilk. Not wanting to waste it, I hopped on Pinterest (the black hole of ideas) to see what other yummy recipes use this odd ingredient that I find less than wonderful. One of the first recipes to pop up was buttermilk pie from The Coers Family.
Pause here to consider that I – an avowed avoider of buttermilk – am preparing to make a pie that is named after and features this ingredient. Crazy? No. I cheated and have tasted this pie before at a potluck. I remember thinking it was good, so I figured what the hey. Let’s give it a shot.
I followed the recipe exactly as written, and OMG DELICIOUS! Easy, too. But the main takeaway from this is how delicious it is. Sweet – but not too sweet. Kind of a cross between cheesecake and flan consistency. Definitely a winner. You should try this immediately. You should also make, like, four of them, so you aren’t left with a ton of buttermilk; I still think it’s ew outside of pie form.
