Lemon Buttermilk Pie

I tweaked my Rustic Buttermilk Pie recipe to make it lemony. Turned out awesome! I just love tart lemon desserts, and this one hits the mark. The dusting of powdered sugar is a nice added touch.

Lemon Buttermilk Pie


  • 1 pie crust (use your favorite recipe or pre-made pie dough)
  • 1 stick of butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • Grated zest & juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Roll out pie dough and place in an 8 inch pie plate. Trim excess & create a nice border. Using a fork, prick the dough evenly to keep it from shrinking during baking.
  3. Mix flour & sugar together.
  4. Add butter, vanilla, lemon zest and juice. Whisk until incorporated.
  5. Add in eggs & buttermilk. Whisk until smooth.
  6. Pour into prepared pie dish.
  7. Bake pie for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. After 20 minutes turn down heat to 325 degrees. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until golden brown on top and firm. It will still be a bit giggly, but when it cools it will firm up.
  8. Dust with powdered sugar & serve.
