Delicious Lemon Buttermilk Pie Recipe

My 86 year old great auntie loves anything that is lemon flavored and one of her favorite pies is this Lemon Buttermilk Pie recipe. This pie is really easy to prepare and makes 8 servings. I try to make this pie for her about every 8 weeks because she loves it so much! I will admit, you have to LOVE lemons to enjoy this pie because it has a medium-lemon taste to it.

Lemon Buttermilk Pie Recipe

9" unbaked pie crust (for a deep dish pie)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 stick of butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place unbaked pie shell into a deep dish pie pan and bake in the oven for about 5 minutes (to brown the crust). Cool. Turn the oven down to 325 degrees. In a large mixing bowl combine together the granulated sugar and butter with an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Add in the eggs, one at at ime, beating well after each egg addition. Add in the buttermilk, cornstarch, lemon juice and salt. Mix batter until well combined. Pour the lemon pie filling into the baked pie shell.

Place pie into a preheated 325 degree oven and bake for 50-55 minutes or until center of the pie is done. Remove and let cool on a wire rack. Once cool place wrap on the top and store it in the refrigerator until serving time.
