Old-Time Buttermilk Pie

Kate Mathews

This recipe is older than I am...and I was born in 1919! My mother and grandmother made this pie with buttermilk and eggs from our farm and set it on the tables at church meetings and social gatherings. I did the same and now our children make it, too!

For filling, cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl. Add flour. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into crust.
