Graham Girl Recipes :: Chocolate Buttermilk Pie
Recently my oldest son and I made one of our most favorite pies for a Thanksgiving Feast with our friends. As always, the chocolate buttermilk pie was a hit. I've had numerous requests for the recipe and I thought I would go ahead and share it before Thanksgiving, so you could add it to your menu!
The recipe was originally made by my grandmother as a plain buttermilk pie and was my favorite. Then, my mom decided to add a bit of pizzazz to the plain, but delicious pie and made it even yummier. Thus, the chocolate buttermilk pie came to be.
Please note, this is not a beautiful pie like a hand weaved cherry or a lovely orange pumpkin, but it is absolutely, with out a doubt delicious.
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour (I prefer King Arthur)
1/2 cup buttermilk + 1 tablespoon buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 stick unsalted butter (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup of cocoa
First, combine all dry ingredients and mix well. Add melted butter, buttermilk and vanilla and combine until smooth. Add eggs and again combine. Pour into a pie shell. You may make your own pie crust or use a frozen one, either option is fine. Bake @ 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until done.
Please note, it is difficult to tell when the pie is fully cooked because of it's color. Be careful not to burn it.
If you make this pie, please let me know how you enjoyed it by commenting on this post. I do love to hear about it!
