Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk Pie

 

Last week, Paul and I along with a couple our kids went down to the city (OKC) for dinner and movie night. We chose Kitchen 423 for our supper and they did not disappoint. I ordered Field Bean Soup and the Harvest Market which was made up of three of their signature side dishes. I enjoyed Crispy Cauliflower with Smoked Cheddar Fondue, Roasted Beet Salad, and Roasted Sweet Potato with Bacon, Goat Cheese, and Burnt Honey. All I can say is yum. We finished with Buttermilk Pie. It was so good I made it again at home for a gathering of friends. It is one of the easiest pies you can make. Five minutes to oven. Creamy and sweet, it has a little crust on top that reminds you a little of Crème Brulee. Serve with a little whipped cream for additional goodness.
