Grandmothers Buttermilk Pie

For as long as I could remember when we would visit my Grandmothers she would always have Buttermilk Pie and it was so delicious. When I was a small girl she made those pies in a wood stove oven and the buttermilk was fresh from the farm. I remember watching her pour that buttermilk into the custard and how thick and rich it looked. Then I remember getting to lick the bowl, that was before we were told that those raw products would be bad for us, it was always good and I don't recall it making me sick, and guess what (I still do it) shhhhhhhh!

  11. We went to Lonesome Dove Cafe in Roanoke last night for a delicious chicken-fried chicken meal (and to watch an Elvis impersonator give a wonderful show). On the menu, I noticed that, along with Blackberry!, coconut cream and peach, they had buttermilk pie. I love living in Texas!!
