Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk Pie

Ok, it's been almost 7 years
since we celebrated my parents
40th wedding anniversary.
boy, time flies
We planned a weekend family
trip to Lake Barkley. We had a blast.
I think we tried
every restaurant in the area.
We found ourselves at the Iron Kettle.
everything is cooked in iron skillets and you serve yourself
I got myself a piece of pie, then
I went back for another!
By the time we left I think my
family ate the whole pie.
It took me a lot of botched pies
before I found a recipe like the one
at the Iron Kettle. Every time I make this pie
I think of our trip to the lake.

They look so good, do they taste similar to a sugar cream or is it the same....thank you for sharing the recipe, hope to make one for Easter. God Bless!
