This was a wonderful, custard pie. I didn't have buttermilk so I used regular milk that I let sit out for 30 minutes with a tablespoon of lemon. I didn't use the full amount of sugar. I probably used about 1 & 1/3 cup. I also used an extra tablespoon of baking mix to make certain it was nice and solid. I cooked it for 42 minutes and dusted with powered sugar and cinnamon. My husband wonders where I've been hiding this pie all our marriage. He was thrilled with it. Read More

It's WAY too sweet and mine took over 50 minutes to set. That said, the fundamental idea is sound and if you cut the sugar (and add flavorings- I recommend coconut extract) this can be very nice. Read More

I love this recipe, as does the family. I'll often shortcut this already shortcutted recipe though by substituting white cake mix for part of the sugar and all the baking mix (then reducing the sugar a smidge). Its great, it's easy, its FAST. Read More

This is very easy & very good! Quick to pop in oven when company drops in. Takes no time to put together. Good warm or chilled. It has a "custardy" consistency that will please all ages. Sweet! This is an old recipe thats been passed around & every generation likes it. I've been making this for years and will make again for years to come. Read More

I had my doubts when looking at this recipe. I decided to make it because I had all the ingredients and the prep took no time at all. This pie turned out to be DELISH! The recipe is so plain and simple that it leaves a lot of opportunity open to add your own twist to it. I will definitely be making this again! Read More

This was very easy and pretty good. Even though I preheated my oven it took much longer than 30 minutes to make. At the 30 minute mark it was almost soup with a thin layer of the crust on top. It took me about 50 mins overal to make and even now I'm not sure that it's done. Read More

I would agree that sugar can be too high; I put in a cup and a third and it was still really sweet. I normally reduce sugar in all of my recipes, especially baking, so take that in consideration! A whole lot of subs on this one; I made my own baking mix for the 1/2 cup of bisquick called for : 6 and 1/2 TBSP Flour, 5/8 tsp Baking Powder, 1/4 teas Salt and 1 TBSP shortning. I combined all of this in my mini food processor and combined until it resmembled corse meal. The other sub I haven't seen anyone mention w/ the buttermilk is Buttermilk powder I use for baking. (saves on fat and lactose!) the packaging for the buttermilk powder says to add powder when combining dry ingrediants and then when it asks for liquid buttermilk add that amount of water. (For 1 cup of buttermilk that breaks down to 4 TBSP buttermilk powder and 1 cup of water) I added the buttermilk powder with the sugar and baking mix and fully combined before adding the liquids. The last little bit of change I had to do; after the thirty minutes the pie was still soup so I kept it in for another twenty minutes until it was golden brown and somewhat solid. Next time I may use a little bit more of the baking mix. TURNED OUT LOVELY - this is going to be a staple in our household!! Read More

Wow, what a great and easy pie! My wife and I love it. I have just started cooking since my wife came down with RA and this recipe fit my skills. Upon her suggestion, I added a half teaspoon each of cinamon and nutmeg. Now I know what to do with leftover buttermilk from baking banana bread. Also I baked it for 50 minutes and it came out right.

I loved this pie! I whipped it up in no time and it was a great way to use up buttermilk. We had it topped with fresh raspberries which was divine. Mine had to cook for 40 minutes to set. Read More
