Buttermilk Pie.

What is more all-American than a good-old slice of pie? This sweet and simple Buttermilk Pie recipe will become your next go-to Southern dessert.

I love a good pie, and this Southern classic is one of my all-time favorites. In my opinion, Buttermilk Pie simply does not get enough attention. It’s both light and custardy, with the perfect touch of tang from the addition of buttermilk and lemon zest.

Another great thing about this pie is that it can be made with pantry staples you most likely already have on hand. The filling is so easy to make too, it comes together in a single bowl as your oven preheats, no need to use a hand-mixer or a million different bowls and saucepans.

I also love incorporating homemade buttermilk in the filling, which is also such an easy recipe ( I think you can probably sense a trend here). I usually make homemade pie crust with this filling, but if you’re short on time, a store-bought pie crust will work well too.

Nostalgic Whoopie Pies.

There are some things that just scream childhood nostalgia and to me a Whoopie Pie is one of those things. Not because I grew up eating them, truth is I didn't try my first one until I was a full fledged adult.

Maybe it's the name, or perhaps the fluffy white frosting, but these fun desserts are just as much fun to make as they are to eat.

A few tips as I share the recipe below, I think they would be great with a dark cocoa powder, both for a beautiful dark color on the pies and also to cut down on the sweetness a bit. I also used a dark brown sugar for a richer flavor, but you can always use light brown sugar as well.

I honestly could not get enough of this pretty brown batter, as I'm always used to ad light, white batter in most of my recipes.

How to cook Whoopie Pies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In your stand mixer, combine sugar, shortening and egg and cream together with paddle attachment. Slowly add dry ingredients - flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt - ensuring they are well mixed. Slowly add in milk and vanilla extract until the batter is well mixed.
  3. Onto greased baking pan add spoonfuls of batter to make each pie ensuring they are as level as possible for even baking and that you give enough space between each as they will spread slighting in the oven. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
  4. Remove pies from oven and allow them to cool completely on a wire baking rack.
  5. While pies are cooling, prepare filling by combining marshmallow fluff, powdered sugar and shortening in your stand mixer with whisk attachment. Add vanilla extract and mix until all ingredients are well combined.
  6. Assemble by taking one pie and spreading on a generous amount of filling. Take a second pie and press together to make a sandwich, continuing until all your pies are assembled. Enjoy!

The pretty texture of the marshmallow fluff was so fun and reminds me of my Grandmother. She always had a jug of it in her pantry for some reason, fudge perhaps? Her pantry was always stocked full of baking goods, able to make any and every recipe at a moments notice without going to the store. My Mom's pantry, and mine, is the same today.
