This is very similar to the buttermilk chess we make at my restaurant. The only difference is that we add 4 ounces of dessicated coconut inside the shell before pouring in the filling.

I have several recipes for buttermilk pies. However, this one is going to the top of the list. Others turn out runny but this one cooked to a good consistency. I let it cook awhile longer than the recipe called for so that may be the reason why, but still it has a great taste and the texture is wonderful.

This pie is fantastic! I made it on Easter and my mom asked me to make another one for her birthday. I suggest using a deep dish pie crust because there's too much filling for a standard 9-inch shell. I saved the extra and baked an 8-inch pie a few days later. YUM!!!
