One of my all time favorite pies is buttermilk pie. Some people call them chess pies and I think there is cornmeal in the chess pie making it slightly different. Recently I had this idea, what if I make a buttermilk pie into a snickerdoodle pie?! I love buttermilk pie and I love snickerdoodles… I didn’t have to try too hard to convince myself to attempt it 🙂
Uncooked pie crust (see my pie crust recipe here)
1/2 cup cinnamon sugar mixture
1/2 cup butter
1 3/4 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
First press your pie crust into a deep dish pie pan. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Then sprinkle about half of the cinnamon sugar on the bottom of the pie crust.
Next cream the sugar and butter together in a mixing bowl. Add the flour and salt and stir. Mix one egg at a time into the batter. Then add the butter milk and vanilla and beat well. This is what it will look like be for pouring it into the pie crust.
Then slowly pour the batter into the crust.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 45-60 minutes or until set. I protect the edges of the pie crust so it doesn’t burn. When it doesn’t wobble (yep technical term there) in the center any more sprinkle the rest of the cinnamon sugar across the top and let bake about 5 more minutes.
Just like a snickerdoodle it has cinnamon sugar on the bottom and top. It is so good I may never make plain buttermilk pie ever again! My husband went back for a second piece and that is always a great sign 🙂
