Grandma's Buttermilk Pie Recipe: This Southern Pie Recipe Dates Back to the 1920s by 30Seconds Food
Buttermilk pie is a southern thing. It's said that people started baking this pie recipe during the depression era ('20s and '30s) because it's made with cheap, simple, staple ingredients.
Serve the sweet, tangy, custardy pie at room temperature or chilled. It's great with a big dollop of whipped cream on top. Store the leftovers in the refrigerator. If you like this pie recipe, try our custard pie, sugar cream pie and cinnamon buttermilk pie.
