The Technique

Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk pie is a southern classic known for its’ distinctively sweet taste. It bakes up like a rich custard & counterbalances the rustic pie crust beautifully. Most traditional recipes are filled with from the farm staples such as eggs, dairy & sugar plus they’re perfumed with a tiny dash of nutmeg. This particular recipe blooms with undertones of bright citrus & a dabble of honey. Top the Honey-Orange Buttermilk Pie with fresh strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or peaches to really savor the season without going to a whole heap of effort. Be sure to follow my instructions featuring three simple designs for making pretty edges, Pie Crust Fluting Techniques & get ready to create a lovely summer stunner.

makes 1 {10-inch} pie crust

The recipe yields plenty of dough to create a bold, beautiful fluted edge around the pie plate. 

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3 Tbsp plain yellow cornmeal
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 cup cold butter
1/4 cup cold shortening
3 to 4 Tbsp whole buttermilk

Whisk together the flour, the cornmeal & the salt in a large bowl. Cut the butter & the shortening into the mixture using a fork or your fingers until crumbly in texture making certain to leave some of the fat in large bits. Drizzle the buttermilk over the mixture & shape the dough into a disc. Place the dough disc between two sheets of plastic wrap. Roll the dough into a 12-inch circle. Remove the top piece of plastic & invert the dough into a lightly greased 10-inch pie plate. Remove the second piece of plastic wrap. Fit the dough down into the pie plate. Lift the excess dough hanging over the sides & fold it under so that it rests on the lip of the pan. Crimp the dough around edges in a decorative pattern. Secure a few pieces of the dough underneath the lip of the pie plate. Chill 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Place the unbaked crust on a half sheet pan. Place a piece of parchment paper into the crust. Top with pie weights or dried beans. Bake on the middle oven rack 15 minutes. Remove the partially baked crust from the oven. Remove the pie weights or dried beans. Cool 10 minutes before filling & baking further according to recipe instructions.

How To Make Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk pie lends itself beautifully for a counterbalance of fresh flavor. Look no further than seasonal fruit to step in. Try a combination of blueberries, strawberries, blackberries & sliced peaches.
