Reviews for Buttermilk Pecan Pie
"waaaayy too sweet!"
"I took everyone's remarks to heart, and since I didn't want two pies.... I cut the recipe in half. The odd egg I simply broke into a cup, wisked it and measured out half. The other half I kept for a later, unrelated, use. Fabulous pie! I took it to an important potluck and my pie was a big hit. I had a little cherry pie filling left over from another recipe. I spooned a little on my piece and it was completely delicious. Not a bad addition, but the pie as is is great. And I don't like pecan pies......"
"This pie was very good, both my kids and my husband loved it. I followed the recipe exact, except I added more pecans to mine. The recipe allowed for me to make two 9 in deep dish pies."
"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!"
"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."
"4 1/2 stars! Simple, old-fashioned and yummy."
"I LOVE this recipe! Not only is it simple to make, it is so delicious. Made it for Thanksgiving, it is now a requested treat at my house. Thank you! :)"
