This is the best buttermilk pie I ever tasted.
Barbara's Buttermilk Pie
1/2 cup butter at room temp.
1 1/3 cup sugar (I used half sugar half Altern)
3 eggs, separated (I never did) at room temp.
3 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cup buttermilk, at room temp.
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pie shell, 9"
Cream the butter and sugar; add the egg yolks, beating after each addition. Beat
in flour and buttermilk; add the lemon juice, lemon peel, nutmeg, and a pinch of
salt. Beat the egg whites until stiff; folk into the filling. Pour the filling
into the pie shell; cook in center of a preheated 325? oven until the custard is
set and slightly brown about 1 hour (my oven 55 min.) Serve with berries, fresh
fruit, or as we did, as is.

Powdered buttermilk does not have to be mixed
separately. I just add the powder with my flour and the water with the my other
liquids and let it mix in the batter.
