Chocolate Buttermilk Pie

Everyone has a favorite childhood  dish that reminds them of special occasions. This is one of mine. I wish I could say it was the exact one my mom made..... it is not......but it is very, very close.

Easy to make, and will win rave reviews from all that taste it. It will become one of your favorite Christmas traditions!!

Chocolate Buttermilk Pie

unbaked pie shells (9 in or larger)
2 sticks
Unsalted butter at room temperature
3 3/4 C
1/2 C
all purpose flour
1/3 C
cocoa powder
1/4 tsp
salt (optional)
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
plus 2 oz. buttermilk


    1.   Combine sugar and butter and mix until well blended.

   2. Beat in the eggs and mix well. Combine and whisk the flour, cocoa and salt until mixed     then add to the butter mixture.

  3. Add buttermilk and the vanilla to the mixture and stir until well mixed.

  4. Pour into pie shells and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Or, as oven temperatures vary, bake as long as it takes for pie to be firm and not jiggle in the middle. Cool completely before cutting. Store left over pie in the refrigerator.

Note: I used an electric mixer though this recipe can easily be mixed by hand.
