Instructions

Make Pie Crust

  • make the pie crust:Whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Cut the cold butter into cubes and add it to the bowl. Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until well combined and the mixture resembles small crumbs. Make a well in the mixture, pour in the buttermilk, and stir with a fork until a dough forms and the entire mixture is moistened.

  • Using a pastry cutter, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until well combined and the mixture resembles small crumbs.
  • Make a well in the mixture, pour in the buttermilk, and stir with a fork until a dough forms and the entire mixture is moistened.
  • Place the dough on a lightly-floured surface and gently knead it into a disk. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and place it on a well-floured surface. Roll the dough into a circle that's about 12 inches in diameter and ⅛ inch thick. Transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie plate and crimp or press the edges. Cover the crust with plastic wrap and return to the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • Place your oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400°F.

Make the Pie Filling

  • make the filling:In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth.
  • Remove the pie crust from the refrigerator and pour the filling into the chilled pie crust.

Bake the Pie

  • bake the pie:Bake the pie at 400°F for 10 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350°F and bake for another 40 minutes. The filling will puff up in the center and jiggle slightly if you gently shake the pie, but a toothpick inserted in the center of the pie should come out clean. Let cool completely.

Notes

Top with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce and a dollop of whipped cream for a truly impressive dessert.
