Blueberry Buttermilk Pie

Blueberry Buttermilk Pie is truly as delicious as it sounds.

We recently dined at one of our favorite restaurants in the Dallas/Fort Worth area called The Classic Cafe at Roanoke and, as always, we were incredibly impressed with the food coming out of very talented kitchen led by Executive Chef Charles Youts.

The Classic Cafe has been open for 25 years, and just keeps getting better and better. Curtis and Chris Wells are brothers, founders and co-owners of the iconic restaurant and make sure guests receive the highest quality experience in ambiance, experience…and especially food and drink.

After a spectacular lunch, Chris suggested we try a dessert item that had returned to the menu after many years. You guessed it…Blueberry Buttermilk Pie.

THIS PIE CAN BE MADE IN YOUR OWN KITCHEN

After one bite, we were hooked. The pie was delicious and though we were stuffed from lunch, we gobbled it up within minutes.

We loved the pie so much that we wondered if Chef Youts would share the recipe with us. Sure enough..he did! And now, we get to share it with you!

BLUEBERRIES ARE IDEAL FOR BUTTERMILK FILLING

We love blueberries.

Fresh, vibrant and bursting with flavor.

You could substitute raspberries or blackberries, but we have a special place in our hearts for blueberries. Maybe they remind of us of the gorgeous Texas bluebonnets that inhabit the state during Spring and Summer months.

If you love blueberries as much as we do, you’ll flip for our: Homemade Blueberry Tarts, White Chocolate and Blueberry Muffins and our Lazy Day Blueberry Cobbler!

The custard filling is so silky and creamy.

You can just imagine the taste of this amazing Blueberry Buttermilk Pie as you gently pour it into the pie dough.

This is the good stuff!

Simply drop the blueberries into the custard before baking. If you can’t find fresh, you can certainly substitute frozen. But…try and find fresh!

As the pie bakes, a few of the blueberries will pop open and release their amazing juice.

Did we mention how much we love blueberries?

BAKE THE PIE UNTIL GOLDEN ON TOP

When you place the pie in the oven, the filling will be, obviously, very liquid in nature.

Let the pie bake for 60 minutes, although since some ovens vary, keep an eye on it. It may take a little less, maybe a little more.

You’re going to love the way your kitchen smells as it bakes!

It should get golden brown on top and the center should set. When you remove it from the oven, it may still “jiggle,” but that’s okay, as it cools, it will completely set.

Once cooked, we like to sprinkle some confectioner’s sugar (aka: powdered sugar).

You’ll want the pie to completely cool before serving. Which is torture…but hang in there…good things come to those who wait.

  • This pie was “to die for”, I made it and 7 different people tried it and it got rave revues!!
    Its definately a make again recipe.
    The only adjustment I would make is that it only required 50 minutes in my oven (which is spot on), so definately keep an eye on it after the 50 minutes

    • Hi Carol!! That is so awesome!! Good point about the cook time…it really does vary from oven to oven…so your advice to keep an on it is good! We find 60 to 65 minutes works for us. But we are so thrilled you and others enjoyed it! And THANK YOU for letting us know. That means the world to us!! All the best, Kris & Wesley

  • Hi. If you make this the day before, should you keep it refrigerated overnight and then bring it to room temperature before serving? Also, I have a two hour car ride on Easter Sunday. Will it be okay without being refrigerated during the car ride or should I pick another dessert and make this yummy looking pie another time? Thank you.

    • Hi Nancy! You can certainly make this the day before, we usually do. Cover in plastic wrap and then refrigerate overnight. It will be just fine in the 2 hour car ride. Everything is fully cooked, so it will nicely come to room temp during that time and during dinner. This really is the perfect pie for Easter and spring. We are bringing two to our families’ Easter feast! Let us know how it turns out and what everyone thinks!! Thanks much!
