I have been tasked with the dessert portion of a dinner with friends this evening. I’m making my first attempt at Buttermilk Pie and I’ve selected a recipe I scawled on a post-it note at my mother-in-law’s house…out of Paula Deen-related magazine. The dessert contains two of my favorite ingredients (what to me should be the building blocks of ANY dessert) — butter and eggs. After only 15 minutes in the oven, my house smells heavenly and I can’t wait to see it through. I bought fresh strawberries to serve with it, and also Double Stuffed Oreos, which we will only bring in the event of an emergency.
UPDATE — Who needs Oreos? (No, but seriously, I’m going to finish those so don’t eat the last one….) That pie was awesome and perfect with simple strawberries. I left the remnants with our hosts, but cried inside as I lifted them into their pie plate. I will be repeating this recipe because it was so very easy, looked so very not easy, and it will pair perfectly with any seasonal fruit.
