This month for the Chocolate Party, the special ingredient was buttermilk. This was harder for me than I originally thought. I have never used buttermilk before for anything….my mom never cooked or baked with it– therefore, this ingredient just didn’t exist for me. When I went to buy some at the grocery store, I couldn’t even find it, and the buttermilk was literally right in front of me on the shelf.
Buttermilk seems like a southern thing to me, so I need to embrace now that I live in Virginia, right?!? So I found this recipe from Just A Pinch for Buttermilk Pie. I brought it to my aunt and uncle’s house for dinner one time, and it was a hit! The pie was decadent and delicious. After making this amazing pie, I think I am ready to check out what the other Chocolate Party members made, so I can use all this buttermilk that’s in my fridge
