Ever had Buttermilk Pie????

My picture cannot do it justice!

This pie is one of my favorites! And it's so easy to make and frugal!

2-pie shells
2 cups cane sugar (you can use white but cane really gives this pie a GREAT flavor)
2 T plain flour
4 eggs
2 sticks melted butter (run mixer while adding)
2 t vanilla
1 cup buttermilk

Pour into pie shell and bake at 325 until set. (Approx. 3o minutes)

Yum. I love custard pies so I imagine I would love this. Do you have a good pie crust recipe?

This one is in most of my cookbooks, however, I'm trying to avoid shortening. *The last time I made it, I used half butter and half homemade beef tallow (or you could use lard).

2 C flour
1 C shortening*
1/2 C ice cold water
1/2 t salt

Sprinkle the salt into the flour, cut in the fat, add water gradually until you have a workable dough. Makes 2.
