Buttermilk Pecan Pie

April 24, 2011 in pie by amanda

This week’s Project Pastry Queen recipe comes from Mariana and it’s the Buttermilk Pecan Pie. I have to tell you that I was pretty stoked about this one. I love pecan pie! It’s definitely my favorite holiday dish so how perfect is it that Mariana’s choice fell on Easter? I waited until just yesterday to make the pie thinking I’d be able to share it for the holiday.

NO GO.

It’s just not a good pie. :( Well okay, it’s just not a good pie for someone who’s used to (and loves) the traditional pecan pie. I had to Google pictures of buttermilk pecan pies when I pulled it out of the oven because I was sure I’d done something wrong. But nope, that’s just what they look like.

Where typical pecan pies are gooey and super sweet, this one is crumbly and not very sweet at all. I ended up covering the piece I tried in sweetened whipped cream which made it 100 times better.

If this sounds like your kind of pie, Mariana will have the recipe up for you.
