Too much sugar in this recipe. It is not balanced. I have a sweet tooth, but this buttermilk pie taste like a sugar pie. Although, I am a lemon lover the lemon juice also makes this pie super lemony and that doesn't balance well with the nutmeg. I say go with lemon and add zest and leave out the nutmeg all together, or cut down the lemon juice to 1 tsp. in this recipe. Still too much sugar tho. The cooking time is not great either for the unbaked pie shell called for in this recipe. I had a soggy shell on this pie that would have easily been rectified by either half blind baking the shell or cooking at a higher temperature at the beginning of the cooking and then turning it down after 10-15 min. Still on the hunt for that perfect buttermilk pie I grew up eating here in S. Texas. This ain't it.
