Buttermilk Pie and Meeting Blogging Friends

 Today I'm sharing an award winning recipe that I received when touring the McKinney Home and Garden Tour. It's so good!

 This sweet teacup that I received from the last teacup exchange always puts a smile on my face!

 My teacup planter is thriving with the Angel Wing begonia.  I wish I had thought to take a picture of what is started out like after the winter months. 



 Recently I met up with two blogging friends at a new to me restaurant, called Rise.  Eilis, who blogs at My Heart Lives Here, is on the left, then me, and then Bonnie, who blogs at Living With Thanksgiving.  Eilis and I had met twice before, and Bonnie, whom I had never met, but "knew", was in from Alabama, visiting family.  Bonnie's DIL suggested this restaurant and oh my, we all loved it!  It was such fun visiting!  We each had a salad,  and like good friends would do, we shared a ham and cheese souffle'.

 Of course, when women are together we just HAD to try two desserts to share! I must tell you that the souffles' were so perfectly prepared and were heavenly.  We had the chocolate souffle' and the bread pudding souffle'.  What a delightful afternoon it was with friends at a fabulous restaurant.

Now for the pie recipe....When I toured the McKinney Home and Garden Tour recently, a lady of one of the homes was sharing recipe.  She told the story that this Buttermilk Pie was served to President Truman on the USS Missouri, and he liked it so much that he asked for the recipe.  The Steward of the ship refused (can you imagine??) to give him the recipe, but in 1994, the recipe was released.  Although my picture doesn't do it justice, it really is a wonderful pie!  Barbara Wagner, who shared the recipe, has won several awards with this recipe. 


Buttermilk Pie

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk or sour milk*
  • 1 recipe Pastry for Single-Crust Pie (see recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted**

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, gradually beat sugar into softened butter with an electric mixer, beating until mixture is well blended.
  2. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Combine flour and salt. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture.
  4. Beat in buttermilk until mixture is well blended. Pour into the Pastry for Single-Crust Pie.
  5. Sprinkle pecans over the filling in piecrust.
  6. Bake in a 300 degree F oven for 1 hour and 15 to 20 minutes or until the buttermilk filling is set. Cool. Store pie in the refrigerator. Makes 8 servings.

Note

  • * To make 1 cup sour milk, place 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough milk to make 1 cup liquid; stir. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes before using it in a recipe.

Note

  • ** To toast the chopped pecans, spread them evenly in a shallow baking pan. Bake the pecans in a 350 degree F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until they're browned, stirring the pecans once or twice during the baking time.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:

  2. How wonderful to meet blogger friends. I know how special that is ;)

    I love that teacup; such a cozy little scene on it. And . . . I'll have to pass on the pie, or I'll never fit into my MOB dress! Looks delicious though.

    Hope you have a good holiday Kitty. xo Deborah

  9. Oh yay another awesome recipe to try out! Neat story - but yes, very surprising he wouldn't share the recipe - wow!

    I made your lemon ice box pie recently and it was sooo good, a new favorite. I may even make it again today - when it's warm it is the perfect pick-me-up!

    Glad you met up with friends! Next time we absolutely must meet when you are visiting here. If just for a half hour, and I will come to you even! Or you bring your momma here for tea and cake. I'd love to meet you both!

    I ho0pe your travels have been pleasant. Big hugs! $

  10. Kitty,I love the teacup this week. So pretty. How fun to meet up with bloggers for lunch. Looks like a wonderful place to have lunch. Glad you had fun. I'm passing the pie recipe on to my pie baking son. It sounds like a good one. Have a Happy day today and a wonderful week!

  11. I've made a couple custard type pies before Kitty, but I love the pecans in this one! I've bookmarked it. Beautiful tea cup, I hope you're having a great 4th of July:@)

  12. Dear Kitty,
    What a joyful time to meet up with two blogger friends! The food sounds fabulous, especially that bread pudding souffle. I have just recently made a souffle because I was always afraid they would fall on me. But it turned out perfectly and I was so pleased with myself for braving it! ;-) I will certainly be trying to make more of them.
    Your buttermilk pie looks scrumptious. Can you imagine, the Steward saying, "No," to the President's request for the recipe? How silly is that! Thank you for sharing the recipe and for joining me today. Happy 4th of July, my friend! Have a marvellous day!

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  18. It's so fun to meet up with blogging friends. I had the joy of doing so on a trip to Florida several years ago.

    My daughter (who no longer blogs) made dear friends through blogging---so dear, in fact, that they were all bridesmaids in each others' weddings.

    Blessings,

  21. Kitty, Love your post today because I'm remembering our outing at Rise. What a good time we had.
    Your buttermilk pie sounds delicious and what a pretty table with your lovely new teacup. Your begonia is so healthy you'll have to repot it soon.
    Funny, as I was writing this your name flashed across the screen and you were visiting me. LOL!

  24. That looks like a really fun gathering of some very interesting women! I shall check out both their blogs shortly....thanks for the links to them.
    Kitty, I was IN McKinney TX about 16 years ago. Ern's son lived in Plano & they took us antique shopping one day. I almost bought a $90 pink depression bowl but feared it would get broken on the way home. I still think about missing out on that one. LOL Thanks for the pie recipe...yours are always the BEST!!

  25. It is so nice that you met up with a couple of bloggers for a lunch that looks absolutely delicious. I'd want to try this pie before baking it myself as fruit pies are what we eat most. I did hear of something different recently and that was a date and cream pie. A woman I met makes them for church dinners - are you familiar with this type Kitty?

  26. I do enjoy meeting bloggers. I also see a sweet teacup :) You share YUMMY recipes, thanks!

  32. Hi Kitty, I hope you had a nice Fourth of July! I just love that little cottage teacup and saucer -- so pretty!! The teacup planter is just charming; anything with polka dots gets my vote. ;) I enjoyed reading about the buttermilk pie recipe. I love to make buttermilk pies; I use a recipe from my Mitford Cookbook. It's wonderful that something so simple to make can be so delicious.

    You're so lucky to have been able to meet two more bloggers. I would love to meet Bonnie; we've talked on the phone, but never in person. Maybe someday...

    Have a great week, my friend. :)

    Hugs,

  33. Hello Kitty,
    First what fun to meet up with more blogging friends! The food at RISE looks delicious! Looks like you all made a wise choice to dine there!

    Love that little polka dot tea cup planter! Very cute! I was thinking about using some teacups to plant some herbs in for my kitchen window!!

    I am curious about that buttermilk pie recipe. Have never had anything like that before. It looks absolutely delicious...I think the oozing pie fillings of yours get me every time. LOL! gotta try that pie too!

    Hope you had a nice 4th!

  35. It's great meeting blogging friends. Looked like a good time and nice dessert.

    The tea cup reminds me of Ireland, not that I have been.

    Liked the history of the pie, a President

  37. If there is anything finer than meeting a blogging friend, it's meeting two and at such a nice eatery. Sounds as if you all hit it off! No, I can not imagine being rebuffed on a recipe. What is up with that?!

  38. Oh Kitty how wonderful to spend some time with blogging friends. Looks you gals had a wonderful fellowship together. WOW! The pie looks awesome but I love the story behind it! Gotta pin this recipe for sure. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    I love Buttermilk Pie but this recipe is a bit different. Can't wait to try it! I've never understood "why" people won't share recipes. I consider it an honor.

    Have a blessed week!

  49. Kitty, This pie looks delicious to me! I love custard and pudding style pies like banana cream or coconut custard so this would be perfect and as a bonus it has pecans! Yum! Your teacup collection is amazing. You seem to have the perfect one for any recipe! I have not yet met up with any blogging friends in real life but I hope to do that sometime soon! Linda

  51. I am so sad about the shooting of the policemen in Dallas...breaks my heart the way the blacks and whites are so far apart.
    Buttermilk pie is a favorite with my sweet SIL so I will save this recipe and make him one (as soon as he and dau. get off their NO CARB diet...)
