Reviews for Buttermilk Pecan Pie
"I love love this recipe! Just a tip for some. I don't like thick pies so I make 2 pies with this one recipe and the always turns out perfect!"
"Great recipe but deep dish pie shells are a must,had enough filling to make 4 regular pie shells.Rather than throw away what was left I improvised & made a custard out of the rest!"
"This is a true combo pie! Part crunchy pecan pie combined with a silky custard pie. Yummy! Unlike any pie we had before. Did not have buttermilk on hand. Used cook's trick to combine a teaspoon of vinegar into whole milk. Tasted great!"
"Best Buttermilk pie I have had! Will definitely make again!"
"Buttermilk pies are my personal favorite, so it was to no surprise that I loved this one also! They are so easy to make and always devoured every time I bring them somewhere."
"I don't like traditional pecan pie at all and only made this pie as it was requested by a guest. But it was DELICIOUS- not cloyingly sweet like the traditional pecan pie. Awesome! I would definitely make this more than just once a year at Thanksgiving. I might even try it without the pecans for a custard pie- the filling was that good."
"I have made this pie around the holidays since it first came out. I make it once a year. It is one of my favorite pies! Great!"
"I was looking for a recipe that would use some butter milk I had bought and found this recipe. I was so good, my family ate in 2 days. Simple and easy to make. Thanks for sharing."
"yes, this is incredible pie - not too sugary - making it for the second time - be sure and use deep dish pie crust - even then it will overflow!"
