  • Prepare homemade pie crust according to recipe instructions. As per instructions, prepare, chill, roll out, and arrange into a 9 1/2" pie plate (do not bake). Return to refrigerator to chill while you prepare buttermilk pie filling.
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Crack eggs into a large bowl and whisk until pale yellow and foamy (about 15 seconds).
  • Add sugar and stir until combined.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir until mixture is smooth (I like to use a whisk to make sure I break up any flour clump).
  • Pour ingredients into prepared pie crust* and transfer to 400F (205C) and bake for 10 minutes. Then, without opening the oven door, reduce the heat to 350F (175C) and continue to bake another 40-45 minutes or until pie is set (the center may still be a bit jiggly but should not be liquidy. The top of the pie will be golden brown and may have puffed some, this will settle as it cools.
  • Allow to cool completely before serving.


*If you opted to use a storebought pie crust that's already in a foil tin, there's a good chance you'll have too much filling. Don't overfill your pie crust, discard any extra liquid.
