Buttermilk Pie  

I got this recipe from Debbie Hatton.  I guess she puts her finger in it cause hers is always better than mine... but mine is perdy dern good.  ;)

3/4 c. flour
3 c. sugar
3/4 c. melted butter
1 c. buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
5 beated eggs  (beat them suckers black and blue)
2 unbaked 9" pie shells

Mix first 5 ingredients together, beat well.  Add beaten eggs and stir well.  Pour into pie shells and bake @ 350 for 45 minutes. 

Homemade Pie Crust

2 c. flour & 1 tsp salt } combine

2/3 cup shortening, cut into flour and salt until it looks like corn meal.

1/2 c water... add to above mess all at once. 

Stir until a big ball forms.  Divide in 1/2.  On floured surface, roll one piece into a circle about 2" larger than the pan turned upside down.  Gently fold dough in 1/2, then into 1/4s.  Pick it up and dust off the extra flour.  Place the corner in the center of the right side up pan and unfold, fitting up sides.  Trim extra dough, flute edges, fill, and bake. 

*** with the extra trimmings: Place them on a cookie sheet and butter, sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon.  Back 8-10 minutes @ 350.  Break into smaller pieces and enjoy.
