I have to thank my pastor’s wife, Barbara Miller, for this pie. It has become a regular fixture in my house. Christy and I first had it at lunch at our pastor’s home after church one Sunday. I was afraid to eat it because I thought it was a coconut custard pie. But Christy gave me one of those “you better taste it” glances and I did.
Wow. Hooked. You will be too.
1/2 cup butter
2 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
unbaked pie shell (deep dish or regular)
1/2 cup buttermilk
DO NOT USE LOW FAT BUTTERMILK OR GOD WILL BE ANGRY WITH YOU
VARIATION Erick hates and Christy loves:
Add zest of one lemon and sprinkle in blueberries. This will take longer to cook due to the extra liquid.
Melt butter. Add sugar and flour. Beat with hand mixer. Add eggs and beat some more. Add buttermilk and vanilla. Mix thoroughly. Pour into an unbaked pie shell.
Bake at 340 degrees for 40 minutes or until browned and set.
