Pies are my go to holiday meal desserts. They are easy to make and feel a lot of people. I like to make at least three different pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. This year I am adding a new pie to the menu - Buttermilk Pie. I always have buttermilk on hand during the holidays to make cornbread. This Buttermilk Pie is a great way to use up any leftover buttermilk you might have!!
This was my first time having a Buttermilk Pie, and I was blown away! This was SO good!! I sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar before it baked and that really put the pie over the top. You definitely want to make this pie the day before serving. It tastes better once it has been in the refrigerator for a few hours. We sprinkled some powdered sugar on top of the pie and served it with a dollop of whipped cream. Perfect!!
