Easy Southern Buttermilk Pie Recipe

Pies are my go-to holiday meal desserts. They are easy to make and feed 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. 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.

How to Make Buttermilk Pie

This pie is SUPER easy to make. Whisk together sugar, flour, buttermilk, vanilla, and melted butter. Pour the mixture into a frozen pie crust. Sprinkle the top of the pie with cinnamon-sugar and bake. That’s it! Easy peasy!

  • There is no need to thaw the pie crust before baking. It will cook along with the pie filling.
  • If you don’t like traditional pie crust, you can bake this pie in a graham cracker crust.
  • Don’t have buttermilk on hand? You can make homemade buttermilk with milk and vinegar or lemon juice. Combine 1 cup milk with 1 Tbsp white vinegar or lemon juice. Stir and let sit for 5 minutes or until it starts to curdle.
  • If the pie starts to get too brown, cover it with aluminum foil and continue baking. The pie is done with it is only slightly jiggly.
  • This pie is best baked at least a day in advance. The pie needs to cool and be refrigerated several hours before serving.
  • Store the baked pie in the refrigerator. The pie will keep 3 to 4 days.
  • Can Buttermilk Pie be frozen? Yes! Cool the pie completely. Cover the pie in plastic wrap and aluminum foil and freeze. Sometimes I also put the wrapped pie in a freezer bag.
  • The pie will keep up to 2 months in the freezer.

  1. Would love to make this! Just curious tho' is there a difference in which type of buttermilk to use. I recall seeing a difference in other recipes using buttermilk or doesn't it matter?
