Recipe Tips

Tips for making a buttermilk pie

I personally like to start all of my ingredients when they are room temperature. So that means I take my eggs out about 20 minutes before I need to use them. Baking is better when the temperatures of the ingredients start from as close of a range in temperatures as possible.
I recommend purchasing commercial buttermilk for this recipe. I believe your results will be more consistent than making homemade buttermilk.
This pie is best eaten while still warm. You should store this pie in the refrigerator. Custard pies should always be stored in the refrigerator.
