Friday is PIE DAY!

My recent PIE DAY post for this glorious pie, left me hankering for more of that buttermilk tang.
So, I took away all the bells and whistles, and made a straight-up-no-frills buttermilk pie.  It's ingredients and preparation are similar to a classic custard pie, but with that signature buttermilk taste.  That said, if you don't care for buttermilk, um, chances are you won't care for this pie either.  But if you love out!

Buttermilk Pie

1 9 inch unbaked pie shell
2 c buttermilk
1 c sugar
2 egg yolks, beaten
1/2 t vanilla
1 T butter, melted
3 T flour

-combine all ingredients in large bowl and beat until well combined
-pour into prepared pie shell
-bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes
-reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 35-40 minutes
(test by inserting knife into center-it should come out clean)
Meringue is tasty on this pie, but optional.  Like I said, I was all about that full on buttermilk experience, so I decided against meringue this time.  If you want to add meringue, here's what to do!

3 egg whites
4 T sugar

-beat egg whites with mixer, adding sugar slowly (i mean it!), until it stiff peaks form
-spread meringue over pie, starting at edges and working your way to the center
-bake in 350 degree oven until slightly browned (about 6-8 minutes)
