A Tasty Tradition


Years ago as a family we took an occasional trip to Jackson hole, WY. We have run the rapids of the Snake River and enjoyed the beauty of the Tetons as well as the shopping in the downtown area. One of our "musts" was to eat at Bubba's BBQ! Not only was the BBQ Fantastic but so was the buttermilk pie! Somewhere along the way we got the recipe and it has been a Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition ever since!
Last night I whipped up a few pies- Giovanni and my tummy were very thankful I did!
If you want to try here is the recipe:

Pie crust: (2 crust)
(this is from Betty Crocker)
2 Cups all purpose Flour
1 tsp salt
2/3 Cup plus 2 TBS shortening
4-6 TBS COLD water

Mix flour &salt Cut in shortening with pastry blender
sprinkle in water 1 TBS at a time- dont add too much!Once mixed shape into two balls, wrap with plastic wrap and chill 45min- on a floured surface roll into 9inch circle and place in pie tin- Fill!

Pie Filling: (makes 2)
Mix together
7eggs
1tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 Cups Sugar
3/4 Cups Flour
1 Cup Buttermilk (I used dry and it was still great)
2/3 Cup melted margarine

Bake at 300* F (160*C) for about 1 or longer- done when golden brown and top starts almost crack(i let mine cook almost 1 hr and 30min).
Hope you love it as much as we do!

I'm having Thanksgiving with Grandma this year. I think I might try my hand at making this pie. Sounds delicious!

I actually have the buttermilk pie recipe sitting right next to me right now as I write down my Thanksgiving shopping list! I have 325* down, though. Last year mine took a little longer than 1 1/2 hours to cook. I was getting worried.
