To give this pie a unique flavor I added some orange extract. Of course, it is just as delicious without the orange extract. Buttermilk pie is like a custard/pudding.
Preheat oven: 450°F
1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 large eggs
1½ cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon orange extract (optional)
- Add all the ingredients to a medium mixing bowl and together until well mixed.
- Pour into the unbaked pie shell and bake for 10 minutes at 450°F then drop the oven temperature to 325°F and continue to cook for 30-40 minutes longer or until lightly browned and the middle is set.
Cool for about 20-30 minutes (room temperature) on rack before cutting.
