Strawberry- Lemon Buttermilk Pie
Yield: 1 (9-inch) pie
Prep Time: 25 min + chill time
Cook Time: 45 min
A nice light tasting pie. Love the lemon flavor and the limey-strawberry topping.
1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
minced zest and juice of 1 lemon
pinch of salt
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell
1/4 cup honey
juice of 1 lime
2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Prepare filling: Whisk all ingredients together in a large bowl until blended. Pour into pie shell and place on a baking sheet. Bake until filling is just set, yet still a bit jiggly, 40-50 minutes. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature; chill if not serving right away. (Let chilled pie stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.)
3. Prepare topping: In a small pan, heat honey and lime juice until melted. Pour over berries in a medium bowl and let stand at least 5 minutes. Just before serving, arrange on pie with a slotted spoon. Top individual servings with whipped cream.
*Don't top the pie until just before serving or the filling might collapse. You could serve the berries on the side also.
