  1. I have never heard of this kind of pie before... I must try it. Is is a southern thing?

  2. It sort of looks like an egg custard pie. I will have to try it and see if it tastes similar.

  4. Did your mother bake the butter milk pie for you when you were a child?

    I've heard an expression: "Nothing is more American as mom's apple pie." I'm not sure if it's correct word for word,though.

    1. Actually my mother does not like buttermilk pie, so she never made it for us. My grandmother made it for us and it was wonderful!
