Buttermilk pie from FC 32

January 7th, 2010

I was browsing the pie recipes in the FC archives and stumbled across this unusual pie-- unusual to me at least.  It was touted by the other reviewers as a great summer pie, but really was perfect for this cold, snowy Chicago day.  First, it bakes for an hour-- buttery warm aromatherapy for the winter blahs.  Second, I have a ton of buttermilk to use up-- score!  One advantage for summer is that this rich filling really benefits from a garnish of fruit-- luckily I had some blueberries in the freezer for a quick sauce.  My husband and I agreed that this will be a great breakfast pie, but my 5-year-old just wanted to stick her fingers in the blueberry sauce.  I definitely won't wait until summer to make this one again-- a pie for all seasons.

Pielove writes: Hey Felt and Juds, Sorry, the recipe is available from the link I posted, but I didn't realize that you have to have an online subscription to Fine Cooking to see it. As this is copyrighted material, I won't just post it for you-- that said, Google is your friend, just type in "Fine Cooking Buttermilk Pie" and you find that some other website has already violated their copyright. So, until gets their cease-and-desist letter from FC's lawyers, you can find the recipe there. Of course, having an online FC subscription is way better, as the buttermilk pie is not the only gem in the archives. Enjoy, I hope it works for you!

Juds writes: I would love to try the buttermilk pie that Pielove praises so highly, but I have had no luck finding it. All I can find is comments about it. I notice that Felt asks for it as well. I tried the internet address that Pielove mentions, but that didn't produce the recipe.
