This recipe is very close to an old family recipe I have for Buttermilk Pie that I have always thrown a handful of coconut and choc chips into. It must be baked long enough or it will be runny. The recipe does make more than needed for a 9". Best if you fill to the bottom of the scaloped part of the crust. The top should be browned nicely and only the center should have a slight jiggle. It is a sweet pie, but our family loves it. Best served cold.. Add a spoonful of homemade whipped cream and drizzle with a nice chocolate sauce. Awesome!
Sink your teeth into this flavorful and delicious pie. With it's coastal flare, this creamy delight will be one of your go-to desserts.
