My kids love buttermilk pie. They however did not care for this version which was flavored too strongly with lemon

This pie is excellent! I have used many different recipes over the years and this one is our favorite. I reduced the butter by half and put it in custard cups to bake. A lower fat treat and equally delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

I used to make this pie years ago when in high school. I found this recipe and it is delicious! Will definitely become a regular in my pie baking.

We are HUGE buttermilk pie lovers! This recipe was fantastic...only modification I made was to lessen the amount of sugar to 1.5 cups. Didn't affect the outcome in any way! DELICIOUS and recommended to anyone who wants a simple yet decadent dessert!
