Buttermilk Pie from GUEST BLOGGER: Armstrong Family Fare

I would like to Welcome today, Willa from ARMSTRONG Family Fare. I love that her husband gets in the kitchen and enjoys cooking with her. How cool is that? Maybe in my next life?


Hello to everyone visiting MOMS CRAZY COOKING!  I’m so excited to be guest posting today.  My name is Willa.  I live in Ohio with my husband, Eric, and our son (2 years) and daughter (6 months).  I have always loved cooking and spending time in the kitchen making tasty things for my family and friends.  After being asked frequently for recipes, I decided it was time to do something about that.  A few months ago I began blogging at Armstrong Family Fare and am enjoying sharing our families’ favorite recipes!  When I’m not blogging (or hanging out on facebook!), I’m trying to keep up with my active little ones, involved in various church activities, decorating cakes or working on a new crocheting project.

When I saw that the theme for guest posts was Thanksgiving Recipes, the first recipe that came to mind was for our Buttermilk Pie!  I know that’s not a traditional Thanksgiving pie recipe, but I promise if you give it a try it might very well become a new Holiday favorite.  Our family makes this pie every year for Thanksgiving and sometimes Christmas as well!  It’s that good!

This recipe was found in a 1994 issue of Midwest Living Magazine that was featuring prize winning pie recipes. According to the article this pie was made by the chef on the USS Missouri. He served this pie to President Harry Truman, who later asked for the recipe. At the time the chef refused to share the recipe, however upon his retirment he changed his mind and gave the recipe to the President! We're very glad he shared!

Buttermilk Pie
found in Midwest Living Magazine (1994)

2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
3 eggs
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 9-inch unbaked pie crust
1/2 cup pecans
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar and butter.  Mix until well blended.  Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg is added.  In a small bowl, combine flour and salt.  Gradually beat into butter mixture.  Add buttermilk and blend well.  Pour mixture into unbaked pie crust.  Sprinkle pecans on top.  Bake pie for 1 hr and 15 minutes, or until filling is set.  Cool and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving!

Thank You so much for sharing this recipe! I will be pinning and making sure that I make this recipe for sure! And I love the historical background, that too is very cool!
