Old fashion Southern buttermilk pie! This is the stuff deep south memories are made of! Have you ever had a buttermilk pie? Its a custard pie that features a thin top crust that has a slight crisp to it, the next layer is light and airy and the final layer is pure creamy, custardy goodness!

The taste reminds me so much of homemade vanilla ice milk with that light hint of lemon and cinnamon.

Its a simple, no-frills pie that tastes great alone or topped with fruit or fresh cream. I prefer it room temperature or cold with a firm set but most seem to like it warm with a soft set. Your call!! Its heavenly either way!

If you have time, whip up this buttery, homemade pie crust! I swear it just makes this pie even more amazing!
