My first attempt at making buttermilk pie for the family bbq. It wasn’t completely flawless when I tried the test pie the night before because the bottom of the crust was not cooked all the way. I found out that it was probably due to the cookie sheet I used. I was thinking it be eaiser to take the pie out with a cookie sheet than just directly out of the oven. Well my dad told me if the first pie was having problems its possible that the cookie sheet was blocking the heat from going directly to the bottom of the pie. It’s probably why the crust was not fully cooked the first time.
So on a last minute attempt because both pies were half way done, I took out the pies then I placed them back in the oven on the rack. I think I was a bit nervous here because I was not sure if the pies would be fully cooked. My dad was joking to me about how I always rely on the Universe to make my desserts taste good lol!!! Actually, its true because I was always think of the last minute things to create for the first time to family events. I ended up cooking the pies for an extra 30 minutes in oven compared to what the recipe stated, the buttermilk looked was already golden brown so I took it out. I did pray over the pies asking the universe to make it delicious lol. Mean while my mom’s spirit was laughing and teasing me again and I told my mom “Come on Mom, you’re up there now so please make my pie delicious!” 😉
The end result… a perfect pie, crust came out beautifully the balance of cream fruit and custard just worked. Fresh heavy cream was the way to go. I dont like super sweet desserts so this really worked and my entire family loved it. And you know what was super cute? A 10 year old girl at the party was staring and waiting so patiently for my pie. My aunt gave her the first slice too. She was super happy, said it was delicious! Heck she waited to eat a slice before she went up stairs to take a bath. Too bad she fell asleep in the bath tub lol. Someone had to wake her up 😉
Did you think I leave without giving you the recipe? Nah, wouldnt do that to you guys so here is the link for it. The only thing I changed was instead of 1 cup of sugar I did 3/4 cup of sugar otherwise it worked out great! The Universe helped me again, so thank you Spirit and my mom up there to help me make such an awesome dessert!
