I'm not sure where Mom got her recipe, nor what happened to it, but it never got passed down to me. When looking through some old Amish recipes, I was delighted to find this recipe for the special "sour milk pie." I made it for my husband, and yep, he didn't want any part of it. That's okay, because that left more for me to enjoy! I hope you will try it for your family too (you might want to hold off telling them the name of the pie before they taste it though).
Amish Buttermilk Pie
1 unbaked pie shell-9 inch (homemade or store-bought)
1/2 cup of real butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons flour, all purpose
3 farm fresh eggs, beaten
1 cup fresh buttermilk (homemade or store-bought)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
pinch of salt
Grated nutmeg (I left that out)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees while mixing the pie. Cream together softened butter and sugar. Add the next 6 ingredients and mix well. Pour into the pie shell and sprinkle with nutmeg if desired. Bake in oven for approximately one hour, or until the top browns up some. Remove from oven and let cool. Slice and enjoy!
