Buttermilk Pie from Louisiana!

Wow, what a way to enjoy Wakins famous vanilla and cinnamon! Here's a great recipe for Buttermilk Pie from Plantation Country in Lousiana! When I was in graduate school in Kentucky, I became addicted to Chess Pie, which is similar to this one. Now, my son's favorite pie is Mississippi Mud Pie, which is a chocolate version of of the Chess Pie. Now this one is a cinnamon-buttermilk version. Phenomenal. Bon Appetite!

Buttermilk Pie

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon Watkins Purest Ground Cinnamon

1 teaspoon Watkins Original Double Strength Vanilla

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 lb. melted butter

3 large eggs

1 cup buttermilk

Mix the first six ingredients on slow speed until well blended and uniform. Add the buttermilk and mix well. Pour into an unbaked 9" pie shell and bake at 350 degree F for 40 minutes or until set and brown on the top.

It needs a butter crust. Here is my Mom's famous pie crust recipe to boot. Sift together 1 cup all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon Watkins Aluminum Free Baking Powder,1 tablespoon of sugar, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, then put in 1/2 cup softened organic butter. Cut with a knife, then flour your hands and rub the butter and flour together until thoroughly mixed. Add 1 teaspoon water and mold into a ball. Roll it out and put in the pie pan.
