Fresh Eggs for My Buttermilk Pie!

Buttermilk Pie recipe here! 


I just made another Buttermilk Pie using my own hens eggs!  
Cooking with them for the first time. The picture below was a double yolk egg! A sweet bonus. I love how yellow the yolks are. Hubby was excited we are now using our hens eggs. He said they are very expensive eggs! The first few are because of all the effort and cost you put into getting there. :)
 The top of the pie is so crispy brown.
 
Look at these sweet eggs Gracie & Flossie laid.
 
The pie is so creamy, just like a custard.  
Kathy from A Tiny Cottage On Grand said in a recent comment: "Well the secret is out. Folks from the deep south has had this pie as a staple for decades. It is also good in custard cups without the pie crust and caramelize the top for a wonderful dessert."
 Oh my, I am craving some more Buttermilk Pie!

That is one beautiful pie my friend...I have noticed using my hens eggs that they are so yellow, they kind of turn things a bit yellow. Thanks for sharing this. :D

I have never tried this but it looks delicious! Our hens are sadly winding down on the laying and I fear we will soon be adding them to the stew pot so we can get chicks in the spring. I have one chicken I'm awefully fond of, she just has the most personality, I'll have to give her away, this farm girl really can not bear the thought of killing her.

Oh, gosh, my all time favorite - I thought everybody knew about Buttermilk Pie. We make it down here in Florida all the time. I make extra batches to freeze. When I first started making it I didn't tell my kids what was in the pie until they fell in love with it - then they couldn't believe it. It is always a surprise to people who aren't from around here. Love it.

All things are better when we add our sweet hens eggs to the recipe. this looks yummy. My family, I am from Indiana, made sugar cream pies? Not the same is it?

Looks both delicious and too beautiful to eat. Glad the hens are earning their keep.

Congrats on using your homegrown eggs. Aren't they great? We call them "real" eggs, as opposed to store bought "fake" eggs!

That pie looks delish. I've never had one of those before.

I started making your buttermilk pie when you last posted the recipe. It is delish...I have made it many times since then. I had never made a crust that didn't require rolling the dough out before so I have that to thank you for also. Thanks so much for sharing that with me.
Blessings, Donna

They are already laying eggs Mema! Wow that is so cool!

June said...

Yum yum!!! This looks...well, like I could eat the entire thing in one sitting! Isn't it so exciting to be able to use your own eggs from happy chickens?
I can't believe how small the world is. Your husband has ties to Hailey. That is awesome. And no...you would HATE the Winters.

Wow that is a beautiful pie lady, I do use my hens eggs too to bake with and it does make a difference. Yes sometimes I think it cost more to keep the hens than I could buy eggs for, but, the eggs in the store are pale, and runny, mine are not, real deep yolks and thick whites, I love my hens too, they are a trip to watch, love them girls. Hey I love your blog too, will be back and will become a follower, thanks for sharing, Barbara from

I just made the buttermilk pie last weekend. Since I just moved from the North to South Carolina, it is a very common dessert here and I just love it. Thanks for sharing.

Love your blog. I am in the midst of changing my blog from chestercountycottagegirl to Coastal Cottage Dreams. Just crossing my fingers that it works for me.
