Call it a win-win situation. This buttermilk pie is downright delicious—sweet and rich—and is simple to make. CoServ Electric Cooperative member Judy Brough wrote of the recipe: “It was described as one that set the phone ringing for requests and a run on buttermilk at the stores. I am most tempted to try recipes that have been described as those frequently requested. It did live up to my expectations, and my sister-in-law, a ‘non-cook,’ even made the recipe for a party.
2 3/4 cups sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons flour
3/4 cup margarine, melted
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup crushed graham crackers
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 9-inch pie crusts, unbaked
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together sugar and eggs; add vanilla and flour. Stir in margarine and buttermilk. Do not beat. Fold in crushed graham crackers and pecans. Pour into pie crusts, dividing mixture evenly between the two. Bake 45 minutes or until center of each pie is firm when tested with a knife.
