Sweet, rich and creamy, this is a custard pie that no one will guess is made with buttermilk! It 's wonderful as is, but downright sinful when adorned with a spoonful of molasses.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 cups white sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
- 2 tablespoons molasses
In a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add sugar, and beat well. Beat in the eggs. Add flour, buttermilk, and vanilla; beat until smooth
Pour filling into pie shell, and bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); bake for an additional 45 minutes, or until set.
Cool at room temperature, then chill. When serving, drizzle individual servings of pie with molasses for that unbeatable combination of flavors!
