Two recipes for this wonderful Buttermilk pie..............

but only one is , what I consider, the true, best recipe.
I have previously, somewhere in the archives of this blog, posted a buttermilk pie recipe, and I am not sure whether it was the new one or the tried and true one that I am about to post here.
A few months ago, I was in a hurry and did not take time to find my "origional" Buttermilk pie recipe and used one that I had found quickly on the Internet. Most of the ingredients were the same, however, the cooking method was different, showing to just mix all ingredients at once and to bake at one temperature. The newest recipe turned out good, but grainy in texture. Today I returned to my origional recipe...........one that makes me remember a Great  Grandmother I really never got the chance to know.........but one that I have loving memories of because of this pie. You can read about this at my country blog by clicking onto this link
Here is the recipe for you to enjoy!
