Bird Dog Buttermilk Pie

 

Sometimes simple is better.  This pie certainly makes a case.  This classic buttermilk pie is enhanced by the special ingredient that lends just a slight hint of blackberry and gives it it’s name- Bird Dog.  So although, it looks simple and plain, don’t turn your nose up to it.  It’s sweet and delicate flavoring will make your tastebuds sing.

Recently, I forced my family to a pie taste off.  I made three pies and they had to take a bite of each one.  (I’m sure you’re really feeling sorry for them.)  This was one of the pies.  They were all surprised at how delicious this rather plain looking pie tasted.  You’ll be pleasantly surprised, too.

Here’s a pic of what I call the Piefecta!  Everyone had there own favorite, but every pie was voted delicious!  Pictured front to back, Bird Dog Buttermilk, Kentucky Derby Walnut and Triple Chocolate Decadence.  

This pie has simple ingredients and requires only a two step process to make.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups sugar
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. Bird Dog Whiskey
1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:  

First Step:  Pre-bake a pie crust for 10 minutes.  (This is a very liquid and sugary pie- the crust needs the extra bake.)

Note: If you’re like me and don’t use buttermilk regularly, consider this recipe for tart cherry breakfast scones. It also uses buttermilk.
