A Southern buttermilk pie meets fresh glazed strawberries in this delightful dessert.
If you’ve ever had a classic buttermilk pie, then you know how rich and creamy the base of this pie is. Buttermilk pie is a custard-style pie that originated in England, but in America, it’s synonymous with Southern food. So you know it’s going to be good.
Now imagine that buttery custard filling topped off with sliced strawberries and finish off with a sweet strawberry glaze.
Topped off with a dollop of homemade whipped cream, this pie is pretty much perfect when it comes to spring and summer dessert choices.
And this pie is as pretty as it is delicious. But don’t worry! It’s really not hard to make. Especially if you use a store bought pie crust.
That’s what I do, and I don’t feel one bit bad about it. Pre-made pie dough is a huge time saver, as far as I’m concerned. I rarely make pie dough from scratch because I’d rather spend my time creating an amazing filling.
But if you do want to make your own pie crust, I highly recommend this recipe for Grandma’s Secret Pie Crust. It never fails to produce a perfect, flaky crust that your grandma would be proud of.
Regardless of whether you use a homemade or store bought crust, this pie is sure to be a a hit. It’s makes for a beautiful presentation and it tastes great too. What’s not to love about that?Print
