Ingredients (Yields: 8 Servings)

3 eggs

1 ½ cups white sugar

½ cup butter (softened)

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

A pinch of freshly grated nutmeg

1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

Let's Bake the Buttermilk Pie:

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C).

Whisk the eggs until they reach a frothy consistency. Blend in the sugar, butter, and flour until you achieve a smooth mixture.

Gently fold in the buttermilk, lemon juice, vanilla, and nutmeg. Once mixed, pour this into your pie crust.

Pop it in the oven and bake until the center firms up, which should take between 40 to 60 minutes.

Once done, let the pie grace your countertop and cool for about an hour before serving.

Pro Tips:

If you notice your pie crust's edges getting too brown, just drape some foil over the pie for the remaining baking duration.

The pie's readiness can be gauged when its top gets a light brown hue and its center has a slight jiggle. As it cools, the pie will continue to set.

For the extra surety test, dip a toothpick into the pie's center. If it emerges mostly clean, your pie is good to go.

Indulge in this classic pie and watch it become a family favorite!
