One day in February I noticed tons of new visitors to this blog and I couldn’t figure out where the traffic was coming from and then I saw the link! Emma and Elsie from A Beautiful Mess featured our Eastern Shore Honey in their beautiful Halfway Homemade Buttermilk Pie Recipe.
Maybe you made buttermilk pancakes this weekend and you have some leftover buttermilk? What to do with buttermilk? There is no better place to invest leftover buttermilk than into a traditional buttermilk pie, a traditional southern delicacy (by way of the United Kingdom) often confused with chess pie. (Chess pie is made with cornmeal.) Buttermilk pie is best eaten at room temperature after being allowed to cool, but may be eaten either warm from the oven or after being chilled.
- 3 eggs
- 2/3 c sugar
- 1/2 c Waxing Kara Honey
- 2 tbsp. flour
- 1 c buttermilk
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350°F
Whisk the eggs with the sugar and honey.
Stir in the other ingredients and pour into your favorite pie crust
Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes until the sides are golden brown and the pie is set (it will still have a slight jiggle in the center).
Allow to fully cool before serving.
This pie is perfect topped with fresh whipped cream or you can add fresh fruit.
