Delicious and creamy pie, loaded with berries. I add 1/2 cup blueberries to the filling and 1/2 tsp of vanilla to the cream topping. Really, this is one of the best berry pies I have made. :)
I’m so glad you liked it Rorie! Love the addition of blueberries to the filling and vanilla to the cream topping.
Hi! I have a question about the amount of pie crust used in this recipe – do you use only one of the discs you formed in the pie crust recipe or both? Because the second one is used for a top crust there. Should I just use half of the ingredients then? I would love to try out this wonderful recipe, but am a bit confused about that… :) thanks for sharing all these delicious recipes!
Hi Jen, yes, you only need to make one disc. BTW, my favorite pie crust recipe these days is this one: no-fail sour cream pastry crust.
i love the sound of buttermilk pie!!! happy 4th.
This may just be my favorite recipe, ever!
I finally got around to making this pie after weeks of putting it off. OMG. Best. Pie. Ever. Thanks!
I made TWO of these pies over 4th of July. They were awesome!!
I used a graham cracker crust and it was quite good.
I’m new to making pies and wanted to try this but with a graham cracker crust instead. However, all the recipes I’ve seen so far with crumb crusts involve baking them first and then adding a filling as opposed to filling than baking. Do you think that it would work with an unbaked graham cracker crust instead of a regular pie crust?
Hi Jessica, your guess is as good as mine. ~Elise
Thank you for this and all your great recipes. I made this for the 4th of July and it was a big hit; everyone loved it including me! – Thank you!
I saw this recipe and tried it because of the picture! It was so simple to make; in fact while the first was cooling I made a second one.
I made this for a 4th of July get together & thought I’d have some to take home. Didn’t happen. Had a lot of buttermilk left so made another just for us. I added the zest of two good sized lemons, which is probably a lot more than a tsp making the pie nearly lemon meringue tasting. This is much easier than lemon meringue so it will become my go-to pie. I did, also, just slightly sweetened the whipped cream & added a dash of vanilla. Also used a top quality deep-dish frozen crust. Just perfect.
Made the pie for the Fourth, and it was just delicious! My five-year-old granddaughter loved helping me place the berries on top. One t-i-n-y sliver left… hope it lasts until I get home!
Wow! I made this for my husband and my father and they both loved it! Thanks for all your great recipes.
I made it for the 4th and Loved it too. My variations: Used plain lowfat yogurt instead of buttermilk; sweetened the whipped cream a little; topped mostly with huge blackberries. So so good. I’ll make it next summer when the berries are in and I’m ready to eat my share of butterfat.
I made this for the first time on Saturday for a evening symphony park event (I made the pie in the morning and added the topping and fruit before the event) – Before I could even dish out all the pieces for the 1st round – empty plates were coming back for the 2nd round!
It was delicious and it looked amazing too! Thanks for the recipe!
I made this for the 4th and it was lovely! It turned out so beautifully golden on top that it could have been sold in a bakery – thanks for the recipe!
Made this past Saturday and it was a hit! Thanks Elise!
I didn’t have the lemons on hand but I had an orange…. it added just the right flavor of citrus! It was just so light; perfect for a hot, humid Louisiana afternoon…
I also had just placed all my summer berries in the freezer so they were my garnish in frozen form. By the time the pie was served they had thawed just enough to taste fresh!
I will definitely repeat this dessert!
I made FOUR of these pies over this holiday weekend (we had quite a few parties/people to visit), and each one was met with rave reviews. Even my friend who never eats dessert because the choices are usually too sweet for her had two helpings. Thanks for another great recipe.
I just finished making this pie, and had my first slice (even though it is 11 a.m.!). It is simply perfect!! It is not too sweet, which I love, and you can really taste the buttermilk. I used wild raspberries that grow in my yard, and the tartness perfectly complimented the rest of the pie. Thank you Elise!! I am sure this will be a 4th of July hit with the family, if I can convince myself to share!
Made this yesterday using frozen pie shell and it was so quick and easy. Delicious enough to eat without the whipped cream and fruit (I had that on the side for those who wanted it). Loved the hint of lemon. Thank you Elise, I’m so enjoying your site.
