The Ultimate Buttermilk Chess Pie

Posted by on Nov 14, 2012

A neighbor of mine gives buttermilk pie as her signature gift every Christmas and for years, my family has eaten the pie within minutes of its long anticipated arrival. The unspoken deal – if you aren’t home at the time it arrives, then you miss out  – has led to a bit of family discord and disgruntlement each year. So after last year’s delivery and the usual pie eating frenzy, I decided it was time to add this to my personal dessert repertoire. Here’s the recipe I’ve settled upon. Hope it spreads holiday cheer and peace amongst your family!
