Ridiculous Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk PieI’m almost embarrassed to post this ridiculously easy and scrumptious buttermilk pie recipe.  First of all, I’m not sure it technically qualifies as “pie”, since it doesn’t have a traditional rolled pie crust.  Second of all, if you look at the ingredients it just seems kind of impossible that it would all turn out so well.  Impossible, in fact, was the name given to it by Bisquick . . . Impossible Buttermilk Pie . . . because it “makes” its own crust.  I actually found this Paula Deen version on The Food Network.  If you’ve never had the classic southern buttermilk pie, don’t let the name fool you.  There is no sour buttermilk taste, just a sweet, vanilla-scented custard that my be the ultimate in comfort food. 

I served this pie with fresh whipped cream and blackberries, but it is just fine all on its own!

    Hi there!
    I found the link to this page by Google Image searching Impossible Buttermilk Pie, because I just made one right now. I also used the Paula Deen recipe, but I was looking around and found the same version on hillbillyhousewife.com, but it called for only 30 minutes. I ended up doing 35, but it looks beautiful. I hope it tastes as good.
