Buttermilk Pie with a Hint of Maple

My fourth (Fifth if you count the amount of times I tried to make the Burnt Sugar Bunt Cake) in the “Baked Sunday Mornings Bake Club.”

I admit to not being a “custard” guy. I am not a fan of baked eggs of any kind. It has nothing to do with “real men don’t eat quiche” but more getting around my head as to what an egg is.

This pie is good. I enjoyed it. More importantly, my Mom enjoyed it. This is the first time I have made a crust from scratch. The recipe was easy to follow, I elected to use a combination of my immersion blender and a cooking fork instead of a food processor. I was incredibly happy with the crust and look forward to using the recipe in other pie incarnations. My problem is the Maple wasn’t a stronger “hint”. Maybe I should have used a higher quality of Maple syrup…

As I baked this morning I thought about all those folks in New York, Rhode Island and New Jersey who couldn’t participate in today’s baking and thought “I am not a custard guy, but at least I am dry and can bake, so lets have pie” (I often rhyme internally, (that isn’t true)).

So here goes: Buttermilk Pie with a Hint of Maple

Keep Baking.

    Beautiful! I have a total weakness for any sort of custard dessert, so this pie was right up my alley. Congrats on your first pie crust – looks great, and I love the fork marks around the edge!

      Thank you! I am looking forward to the rest of this club’s recipes. Its been a lot of fun. The fork marks were inspired by my mother, she’d say “well, this is how I as taught” so I am following suit.

  4. I used a grade B maple syrup and it really was a great subtle flavor. Always a winner when you can make mom happy.

      I used Grade A. I would have gone with a better grade, but I wasn’t sure what my result was going to be. I think if I were to make this pie again I’d splurge for something better. Looking forward to next’s weekend’s Baked Adventure!

    I too was thinking of BSM peeps who could not participate this weekend due to the storm and am very grateful to be safe and dry over here in Cali! Your pie looks great! :)

      Thank you! I live in Virginia, while we lost power for a day or so (at work not home thankfully), it was nothing compared to what happened North of me.
