Last year for Christmas, my fiancee had asked me to make him a buttermilk pie (being from Illinois, I'd never heard of them or had one). We tried a recipe from this site last year, but have since misplaced it. He thought it was this one, but after making it last night, we now know it is not. This is a decent recipe, but it is very very sweet! Next time, we'll reduce the sugar in this recipe. Additionally, if you want your pie to have the crunchy caramel layer on top, cook it closer to the top of your oven; if you want more of a fluffy quiche-like pie, cook it on the bottom of your oven (we cooked two and this is how it happened). If you're worried about it being too runny, let your pie sit in the fridge overnight and it will congeal and not be like pudding. Another thing that we had a problem with was that this pie had butter sitting between the filling and the bottom crust. So we'll either reduce the butter or add a little more flour to help with that. Overall, a decent pie, but very sweet; adjust sugar to your own taste.
