How to make Mama’s Buttermilk Pie

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Whisk the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl.

Step 3: Place the salt, corn start, and sugar in a large bowl.

Step 4: Place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and melt in the microwave. Drizzle over the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined.

Step 5: Then, pour the egg mixture over and stir until incorporated.

Step 6: Evenly pour the mixture in the pie shells.

Step 7: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 50 minutes to an hour. The pies should be jiggly when done.

Step 8: Cover with a pie shield if available after 35 minutes and continue baking. Or you can use a foil to cover the crust to keep it from burning.

Step 9: Once done, remove from the oven. If in case the butter looks like it is sitting on top, don’t worry just give it time to rest and it will seep right back into the pie. Opt to put the pie in the fridge, too.
