Classic Southern Buttermilk Pie

    You know what? I was so looking forward to tasting this. I even made the crust from scratch, like I did in the old days. Don't work so hard. Use a pre-made pie crust and settle in for a serviceable pie. It wasn't wonderful - and the only reason? Too much lemon! I wanted a Buttermilk Pie and ended up with a sort-of-lemon pie. I wasn't expecting lemon, and wished I had put less lemon juice in the recipe. Buttermilk Pie this is not. Sort of Lemon Pie? It's good. Next time I'm using (much) less lemon juice. It wrecked it for me!

    I've never had a buttermilk pie before so I was really excited to try out this recipe. It turned out amazingly well! It had a nice custard texture with a light, sweet, buttermilk flavor with a hint of lemon. Definitely will make again!

    This is a great pie with a great crust. However, it is definitely more of a lemon custard pie! I love lemon, so I didn't mind. My only criticism is that it was a little too sweet for me and my family. So, next time, I will reduce the amount of sugar. Other than that, my family loved it!
