Easy As {Buttermilk} Pie

This is my family's very favorite pie.
We are the only people I know who make it.

Why is that?
Maybe because no one else has the recipe?
I dunno.
Well, now YOU have the recipe too!

It's a rich sweet custard pie that is very easy to make!

I originally got this recipe from my ex's aunt....
who got it from her friend...
who got it from a buttermilk carton in east Texas.
Maybe it's a Texas thing?

Anyway, I used to make pie crust from scratch.
I buy my crusts now.
It saves tons of time and they are really really good.

{this is for one pie...last time we quadrupled it!}

2 cups sugar
1 stick melted butter
4 TB flour
3 beaten eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1 pie crust


Mix sugar, butter, flour, eggs, buttermilk and vanilla in bowl.  Poke your pie crust with a fork so that it doesn't puff with air bubbles.  Pour mix into pie crust.  Sprinkle a good dusting of cinnamon on top then swirl with the back of a spoon.  

Bake at 325 degrees for one hour.

I usually wrap a strip of aluminum foil around the edges for the first 45 minutes to keep the crust from getting too dark.  

It is best served warm with a little whipped cream on top. 

P.S. My son Grady and his friend Devyn made this last batch of pies....after I went to bed.  
It was his first time making these and they turned out GREAT!
