Buttermilk Pie

I had never actually eaten Buttermilk Pie before, but it sounded tasty. I tried it last night with good results. I found this recipe and it seemed simple enough...and it was.

3 eggs (or 4 eggs for less sweet version)
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour, plus a little for dusting
1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup buttermilk (or 1 1/2 cups buttermilk for less sweet version)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. Beat eggs slightly and add sugar and flour. Then add melted butter and mix well. 3. Add buttermilk and vanilla and mix.
4. Dust the unbaked pie shell with a little bit of flour. Pour batter into shell, and then sprinkle a little more flour on top.
5. Bake at 325 degrees until the custard is set, approximately 1 hour.

Mike wasn't thrilled, because it's very much like an egg custard and he's never really liked that type of pie. But Abby was an immediate fan. I'm thinking this may also be good made into tarts, but I haven't tried that variation yet.
