Buttermilk Pie IV
It wouldn't be a holiday around our house if there was no buttermilk pie to eat.

OH MY GOODNESS! I have NEVER had this pie before. It was like a combination of butterscotch and vanilla and melt in your mouth GOOD! The only thing I wasn't sure of was whether or not I should pre-bake the crust... I did not.. and it turned out SMASHING! Anytime I have leftover buttermilk from my famous pancakes, I am most certainly going to make this pie again and again! THANK YOU!Read More
My children and I have insatiable appetites for sweets. We can eat pounds of candy, or brown sugar right out of the bag--if I were to allow it. So when I read the warnings about this pie being too sweet, I thought, "There's no such thing as too sweet!" Well, let me tell you, this is too sweet. Way too sweet. Even my children complained! If I make this again I'll use only 1 1/2 cups sugar, or less.Read More

I reduced the sugar in this recipe to a cup and added 2/3 cup sweetened coconut flakes and 2/3 cup of chocolate chips and 4 eggs instead of 3. My family now loves this and I make it for all the potluck dinners I go to and get rave reviews and numerous requests for my recipe. I hope you enjoy!! Never be afraid to experiment!!
I made this pie for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I followed the instructions exactly and the only change I made was a sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar on the top before baking. If you like pecan pie but find it to be too rich then I encourage you to try this one. It is very similar in flavor but not nearly as heavy and rich as pecan pie. In fact,the next time I make it I'm going to try it as a base for a pecan pie. It couldn't be easier to make and the ingredients are very inexpensive. All I had to buy was the buttermilk. And don't worry if you hate buttermilk (as I certainly do) you won't even taste it. This is a very creamy, sweet, and highly addictive pie!
I saw a show on TV about a resturant that served Buttermilk pie. I never heard of it and decided that I would look up a recipe. Not only is this recipe easy its wonderful. I took the advice on some reviews and reduced the amount of sugar. My crust didn't burn and I even left it in the oven 10 minutes longer to brown the top some more. The top is crunchy and mixes well with the gooey inside. This is so good! I really didn't know what to expect, but I am pleasantly surprised. It is really sweet and has a wonderful after taste. I can't wait to take this work, I am sure everyone will love it.
Although it was great overall, I think it would be better with a little less sugar. To me, it tasted like almost pure sugar.
This pie was very good with a rich, tangy, buttery custard that melts in your mouth. I took the recommendation of another reviewer and cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups, but I felt like it was still too sweet. I like to taste the flavor of the dish, not just the sugar. Next time, I'll cut the sugar down to 1 1/4 cup. Otherwise a very easy and very tasty pie.
This was the BEST pie! I had never made it before...and my family just raved over it. However, I did take the advice of one reviewer and instead of 2 cups of sugar I used 1 3/4, and I had forgotten to buy a deep dish so I divided the pies into two regular 9" shells and baked two pies. It turned out great and I have already shared the recipe.
I had some buttermilk left over from some muffins I made a few days ago. I'm so happy I used it for this pie it is delicious!! I did make my own crust, and sprinkled some cinnamon over the top. Great Recipe !!!!
I followed the instruction to a "T" and product two delicous pies. It was a hit at work, both pies were gone before the ,iddle of my shift. Simple to make and tastes great!! Can't bet those qualities about it.
Very Good! This pie was so simple and delicious. I had never had buttermilk pie before, and this was a smash. I did add some tart apples to the recipe for just some added fruit, by barely getting them tender over low heat with some sugar and cinnamon. I added this before I poured the filling into the pie, some of the apples floated to the top, and baked up absolutely gorgeous and were very very tasty!
Excellent! I can't cook, but I love to eat...so I decided to try recipes from this site! This pie is so wonderful, my family was thrilled that I could cook something. My cousin said "although the pie is hot and it has burned my tongue, I can't stop eating it!"
My family absolutely loved this recipe. This is one I'll definitely keep around.
My children and I have insatiable appetites for sweets. We can eat pounds of candy, or brown sugar right out of the bag--if I were to allow it. So when I read the warnings about this pie being too sweet, I thought, "There's no such thing as too sweet!" Well, let me tell you, this is too sweet. Way too sweet. Even my children complained! If I make this again I'll use only 1 1/2 cups sugar, or less.
This pie was so easy to put together! I did not have buttermilk so I used 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice. I did mess up with the oven temperature. I reduced to 350 instead of 325, so this baby came out of the oven about 15 minutes sooner. It came out beautiful with the top and crust nice and golden. I will make this again.
Very sweet, yet very good. I have used this recipe several times. It's very easy to make. My 12 year old niece has asked me to make one for her birthday! As one of the other reviewers mentioned, low fat buttermilk does not work, unless you add a teaspoon of cornstarch to the mixture to thicken it.
2 Cups of sugar!?!? Way too much. I used 1 1/4 cups as others have suggested and it came out just right. Buttermilk pie is a great pie classic.
I loved buttermilk pie growing up, so I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner. When I went to get a piece of pie, it was gone! Everyone loved it. Since then, I've made this about 5 times. I think sprinkling cinnamon and sugar makes for a more appealing crust on top. I've also made a homemade crust and storebought. You cannot tell the difference, so I will use storebought! I dust the crust with flour before putting in pie plate as the box says to keep it from getting soggy.
Yummy! I've never had a buttermilk pie before and it sure was good! I made 2 standard 9in pies with some minor adjustments... I halved the sugar and right before I put it in the oven I sprinkled cinnamon and nutmeg on top. This is my new recipe to use up leftover buttermilk!!
I have made this recipe several times. I follow this recipe to a tee. I found this here on All recipes a couple years ago. You can not go wrong with this pie. It is delicious and SO easy. I have tried several things. Fat Free buttermilk is not good at all. For a richer creamer pie use Bavarian Buttermilk. Try this pie you'll fall in love with it. THANKS to the submitter it's a family favorite around the holidays.......
I made this for my husband's Christmas party at work and everybody loved it. I will be making one for Christmas lunch. The only change I made was I used butter instead of margarine.
Yummy, it must be a forgiving recipe. I substituted coconut flavoring for the vanilla and used 2 regular pie crust instead of the deep dish, simply because that it what I had on hand. We really enjoyed it, thanks for the recipe.
THIS IS A REALLY GOOD BUTTERMILK PIE RECIPE. THE ONLY CHANGE I MADE WAS USING BUTTER INSTEAD OF MARGARINE. THIS RECIPE IS A KEEPER!!!!
Delicious! I only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar and it was plenty sweet. I used twice a much vanilla because I love the flavor. The sugar carmelized and gave the pie a slight caramel flavor that I absolutely loved. I wouldn't make this pie with anything but whole buttermilk. Will gladly make this pie again.
I hate buttermilk pies, but it's my boyfriend's favorite because his mom used to make it for him. This is the only recipe I have found that I love! Had to make changes though: there is too much filling for a deep dish, so I either do one deep dish and a small personal pie, or two regular pie shells. if you do 2 regular pies at same time- I put on a cookie sheet, cook at 375 for 15 min and 350 for 30. They turn out perfect!
Super easy and absolutely wonderful! VERY sweet and great texture. You can also bake at 350 degrees for the whole hour if you prefer a completely creamy pie with no crispy top.
Love this receipe! So easy to make and it turns out great!
My boyfriend used this recipe and it was amazing. We had way to much filling though it filled 2 9 in deep dish pie pans. It was VERY good! We will make it again for sure!! He even liked it and he is very picky!
Huge hit at thanksgiving. I'm sooooooooooo glad I made this, too, since I forgot to put sugar in the pumpkin pie! Ha!
Yum, yum, yum, yum! I cut the sugar back to 1 1/4 cups and it was the perfect amount for us. Also used my own homemade pie crust. Absolutely awesome! Turned out fabulous!
Wow! I tell you what! This pie is the king of all buttermilk pies. After trying several store-bought pies and tasting them at pie auctions and bake offs (I love to taste) I finally decided to bake my own. This was the fist recipe I tried and the only recipe i will try, and I finally realize why buttermilk pies have transcended throughout the ages. My family worships this pie and are convinced I am the only one who knows how to make a pie (they call it my famous buttermilk pie...shhh)and now expect it at any gathering or event. Just three tweeks more butter, less sugar, and little to no lemon. It'll have 'em beggin' for more.
whooo weee! Soooooooo sweet, but sooooo good. I think I'd only use 1 cup of sugar next time, but there definitely will be a next time.
I have made this pie a few times, and it always comes out great, my hubby absolutely loves it! Its a keeper!
This pie was VERY easy to make and YUMMY!. As other people suggested, I only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar. Everyone loved it and they are begging for more.
I used butter. My family liked it therefore I will rate 4, but I think next time I will separate my eggs, beat the egg whites until fluffy and fold in gently as I wished it turned out lighter.
All I can say is....DELICIOUS. Everyone loved it. Will make it again and again. Served with fresh strawberries and it was yummy.
Reduction of sugar is necessary...otherwise, it was ok...
Great recipe. I did cut the sugar to one cup and it proved to be plenty. Might even reduce it a little more next time. Sprinkled cinnamon on the top like another reviewer. Very good! Thanks!
Loved it! Just like my Mom's!!! It was easy too!
Wow, this was sweet, even with the sugar cut down to 1 1/2 cups as other reviewers suggested. The taste reminds me of tapioca pudding for some reason. I put a tin foil cover over the pie for the last 15 minutes of baking because it was starting to brown too much. Super super easy recipe!
this is a wonderful pie just right.i love it
Everyone raved about this recipe, one lady said it was the best buttermilk pie she had had in a VERY long time.
I think I found a new favorite pie!
Very yummy. I live in Colorado, so high altitude, so I baked 10 minutes longer.
My husband wouldn't try buttermilk pie b4 but this time he did and he loved it. I used ready-made gramcracker crust and he said that did it for him. It is too sweet for me so I will go to 1 1/2 cups sugar next time. we still have buttermilk and my hubby already suggested I made another one.
This is, without a doubt, the best buttermilk pie recipe ever!! I had never before liked buttermilk pie, then I tried this recipe. Buttermilk pies have always been a favorite of my family's, and I did most of the baking last year for the holidays. I decided to try it, and I ended up eating way too much of it! :-) I did make the mistake of not getting the deep pie crust, I had gotten two packages of the regular crust, so I was able to make 4 pies... they did not make it to Thanksgiving(only 2 days away)! I was up late the night before baking them again, then hiding them so we could have them for the Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for this recipe, it is now one that we all look forward to making(due to the ease of it) and enjoying!
I don't know what it is about this pie, but I loved it! I had extra buttermilk & needed to use it up. I found this recipie & what a keeper! It baked up beautifully & smelled wonderful. The texture is like custard. It was firm & nice to slice. I reduced the sugar by 1/2 because that seemed to be the general recomendation amongst reviewers & it worked perfectly! This is soooo easy to make!
I have made this recipe several times with rave reviews each time. I took the advice of others and reduced the sugar. I also added 3/4 cup each coconut, chocolate chips and pecans. Totally awesome.
This is Delicious!! Everyone loved this one! Was a big hit!
Good pie BUT the sugar needs to be decreased. It is just toooooooo sweet!!
This pie was too sweet for my family's taste.
Yummy yummy yummy!!! Enough said!!
4 star for potential. I should've read some of the reviews first. I thought 2 cups of sugar was too much but went for it anyway. DEFINITELY way too much. I baked as directed and the insides are still a little wet. I cut a piece out already to taste, going to put it back in the oven and hopefully it'll be able to bake up some more. Will probably make this again, but cutting out some of the sugar and maybe do as others, cut down the temperature of the oven and bake a little bit longer.
I had to cook it an extra 20 minutes it seems! The texture is too gelatinous for me.
Didn't change a thing and it is the best!!
I followed this recipe exactly how it is written and it turned out rubbery.
This recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. I love it just the way it is. Every Holiday you can expect we have at least 3 of these pies.
Easy to make, impossible to ruin (if you keep to the recipe), and without a doubt, a 'melt in your mouth' pie.
A little too sweet
Delicious. I decreased the amount of sugar by 1/2 cup and I have to agree with some of the other reviews that it was still pretty sweet. Next time I'll try it with only 1 c. sugar. A great recipe though and chances are I will make it again.
Utterly delicious. Loved it.
This recipe is so easy to make. I have become addictive to this pie. I love it. I cook it for an half hour at 400 degrees and then for 45 minutes at 350. I have given this recipe to some of my friends and they love it.
So easy and so delicious! The hit of christmas. Followed recipe exactly just sprinkled some cinnamon & sugar over the top before baking.
Yummm. Wouldn't change a thing. Very good.
Excellent! I sprinkled sugar and some cinnamon on top which created a caramelized layer on the top - very good! Better than the other ones I have tried.
My family loved this one, however, I only gave this 4 stars because I used less sugar (I think 2 cups would have been overwhelmingly sweet) and I used butter instead of margarine. Also, as an experiment, I made two pies; one with only 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of sugar (just in case 1 cup wasn't enough since I was cutting way back from 2 cups) using the baking temperatures given in the recipe; and the next day, I made the other using only 1 cup of sugar and baking at 350 degrees for 1 hour as one reviewer recommended. The winner: the "1 cup, 350 degree for 1 hour pie" hands down was the best because it really tasted like vanilla custard. Also, it wasn't as dark on the top so being less carmelized (than the first pie), that cut down on the sweetness as well. Next time, I may even bake it for an extra 3 to 5 minutes since there was a very thin layer on the bottom that was gelled but like pudding...but so good though! In contrast to my first pie with the extra 2 tablespoons of sugar simply tasted sweet. It was good but I see that the extra sugar didn't allow the vanilla flavor to come through.
I love Buttermilk pie!!! I have a wonderful aunt who usually cooks this recipe for the holidays but she hasnt been able for a few years and the recipe has been lost soo I have been looking for years for a new recipe and this is it! Thank you!! The only thing I will change is like others suggested cut the sugar in half! :)
Way, way too sweat
Yes, a bit sugary but still an excellent pie. I will make this again but reduce the sugar as well. Very easy to prepare.
This pie filling was very good but I did cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups, the 1/2 cup butter was too much and my pie crust was oozing butter. The filling was awesome but it was too much to eat the crust and the filling together--I would make again with less sugar and less butter.
This Buttermilk Pie was delicious. I didn't feel that is had too much sugar. I followed the recipe exactly. I may use two regular pie crust next time and decrease the cooking time when using two crust. Thanks for a new family favorite.
Excellent! Based on other reviews, I used less sugar (1 1/2 CUPS), and I added 1 T. vanilla. Before I started mixing anything, I brought every ingredient to room temp. This was for my mom's b'day and it was a huge success. Thx for the recipe!
I made this pie today and it was delicious! I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups as suggested and I am glag I did because it definitely would have been too sweet. I used a stick of butter instead of margerine and I reduced the temp to 350 for the first 15 the 325 for 1 hr. It wasn't runny at all, it firmed up nicely. Will definitely make it again!
I made this pie for Christmas and the filling didnt set for some reason. I took it out because it was starting to burn. But I know if the filling did set it would have been a good pie. Im going try another recipe.
Be careful about getting the top too brown. I baked mine on the lowest oven rack.
My husband called from work and requested this pie.....my first time making one and it is delicious!! He says it tastes like the one his "old aunt" used to make when he was younger! I will surely be making this one again and again! I lessened the sugar by 1/2 cup....still sweet enough for us! THANK YOU!
I love this recipe !! I had this pie a long time ago at a bingo hall in Texas. This is wonderful, I make it all the time now.
This recipe was the bomb! I recommend this buttermilk pie recipe above all the others.
good easy quick did it with left over buttermilk little over an hour and i was enjoying this pie, but next time less sugar
I have made this pie a few times. I am not a very good baker but this pie is easy to make and very good.
This is almost like a butterscotchy custard. It's very unique and tasty! Loved it!
Very good. I used butter instead of margarine and more vanilla. It was very sweet, but that is what a Buttermilk Pie is! :) Top browned a little too dark, probably a problem with my oven. I tried to cover with non-stick sprayed foil and accidentally took off part of that... ended up looking GREAT anyway! Watch the actual time in oven at the end. Mine could have taken another 2-3 minutes in order to set really well.
I made this for 5 of us and no one really liked it. It was really sweet and didn't have a lot of flavor. A few people said it tasted like flan or Pecan Pie without the pecans. We all agreed it would taste better with something tart like lemon in the batter or unsweetened raspberries or strawberries on top. The top also burned which I noticed 5 minutes before the timer went off. Luckily, the burned layer peeled right off. I will not be making it again.
So easy and so yummy! I may cut the sugar a bit next time, it was a little too sweet.
I'm giving this a four star rating, and the only reason that it doesn't get a five is, I guess, a difference of taste. The recipe works well as written; you get a lovely buttermilk pie--although even with careful checking of my oven temp with a thermometer, I had to shorten the baking time a little. However, it is, to my palate, at least, incredibly sweet--too much so, I think. On my first try, I made it according to the reduced-sugar suggestion, and even that was too much. I think a version of this could be made with as little as 1 cup of sugar, actually. As the original recipe goes, however, the pie is really pretty, a very nice presentation.
Oh My Stars!!! This was AMAZING! For such simple ingredients, the results were FAB-U-LOUS!! I did put foil around the edges and probably should have also covered the whole pie at the start and taken off the middle half way through. I used 1 3/4 sugar as suggested and since this is basically a vanilla pie, I used about a tablespoon of real/LOW Alcohol Vanilla and was glad I did. I would probably take the advice of others and add one more tablespoon of flour next time to help absorb the butter. It was so good hot and it was so good cold - either way was just perfect! I can't wait to share the goodness with my kin-family, work family and my Whole Backstage Theater family at the next pitch-in!
This is a wonderful pie, and for me a go to when ever I make my buttermilk cornbread. It’s easy to prepare and is always a big hit with friends, especially those that have never heard of buttermilk pie! Thanks for sharing.
Wow, this is very good. I used 1 cup sugar and 1 cup Splenda and it's very very sweet. I may cut back the margarine next time to about 1/2 a stick instead of a full stick and I did use fat-free buttermilk. The pie is very rich and yummy. Thanks for a great recipe!
Buttermilk pie is a tradition at our house and I lost the recipe. Decided to try this one. Hubby is the Bmilk pie freak and he said it was the best one I had ever made. I reduced the sugar to a little shy of 2 cups but other than that followed the recipe to a T, which is suprising because the other recipe called for three cups sugar which I always reduced. Anyway, thanks so much for the recipe. I'm making it again today cause I bought too much buttermilk!
This pie has a wonderful taste, but toooooo much sugar and butter.. I only ate 1 slice and trashed the rest.. I'll make this pie again for sure, but only use one cup of sugar and half stick of butter... Overall good pie!!
Very good!! try adding coconut
It's taken me a long time to get around to reviewing this. I've been using this recipe for years. The only change I've ever made was to substitute real butter for margarine. This is so delicious and it's the first dessert that's gone on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
If you want a great buttermilk pie, by golly this is it! I made a Father's Day spread and had buttermilk left over from other recipes that I made. My father loves buttermilk pie, and last minute (who knows why), I thought I would look up a recipe and throw it together. Well, it was a rare good last minute idea and it was completely devoured. I got one small piece, there were no leftovers. In fact, my father told everyone that since it was father's day, that the pie should belong solely to him. He only got one piece too. Poor guy! But no worries b/c I still have some buttermilk left and as easy as this was, I will be surprising him with his very own tonight! I only used 1 1/2 cups of sugar and it was perfect. I love any and all things sweet, so I probably would have loved it w/2 cups. But I didn't want to make it too sweet for my guest. 5 stars for sure!!
There is way too much sugar in this. I cut it back to 1 1/2 per other reviews. It was still good but I prefer the Buttermilk Pie on this site.
Buttermilk pie was something I grew up eating in the south. I recently turned my husband onto eating it (he's from Michigan). He begged me to make one for Christmas. I found this recipe and it seemed very similar to what I've been eating for years. It was very easy to make and came out wonderful. One of the elders in the family said they had been eating buttermilk pie for years and never had one this good. That was a big deal for me. So needless to say this is a pie I'm sure I'll be making time and time again. I'm sure they'll be no complaints either. Especially since I was asked when I'd be making another :)
I have made this twice now. The first time I took it out 5 minutes early because the top was getting so dark. That was a mistake as it was too runny. The second time, I covered it with foil towards the end and left it in for an extra five minutes. It was still a bit runny, but not so bad. It thickened up after I put it in the fridge. Will I make this again? Maybe if I have the ingredients already, but only then. Tasted pretty good.
My husband and I are huge fans of this recipe. Thanks!!
Oh, my gosh, this is good! I agree that the 1-3/4 c of sugar is way plenty, but this goes in my "good stuff" recipe box for frequent use. It's best served slightly warm.
I had never heard of this pie before and initially I was skeptical - sounded boring. BOY, WAS I WRONG! It was DELICIOUS!! I even tried to convince my 13-year old that he wouldn't like it and that he should give his piece to me. He took one bite and said "No way"! Thanks for a keeper!
This was a first for me, having never heard of it before. Good, but *very* sweet. Kids liked it.
