Southern buttermilk pie is smooth, rich, and sweet. It's a delicious holiday dessert that's a little different from your traditional holiday or thanksgiving pies. (nut-free)


  • 1 homemade pie crust
  • 1 stick butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour (or white whole wheat flour)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  1. Heat oven to 325°F.
  2. Roll out pie crust and press into a pie dish.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together butter, sugar and flour until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. Pour filling into pie crust.
  4. Bake pie 55-60 minutes, or until center is set. If the top starts to get too brown, cover it lightly with foil.
  5. Remove from oven and cool completely before serving.


This recipe is for a larger pie pan (10-inch or a deep 9-inch). For a regular 9-inch pan, use the following measurements and check for doneness around 45 minutes:

  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp salt
