Orange Buttermilk Pie

I had never made buttermilk pie.  I have made chess pie, which I think is similar in its rather nondescript, soft, creamy texture.

This was pretty good.

And I must admit, I was pretty intrigued by orange pie.

I followed the recipe for the pie (and attached shortcut piecrust) to the letter…except I substituted 1/2 tsp of orange extract for the 1 tsp orange zest it called for (my pantry was all out of zest).  Honestly it could have used more because the pie itself was not orang-y at all even though it also contained 2 TBSP orange juice.

The family thought it was pretty good, though. Since I forced them to eat their dinner first before they could get pie, they had to stuff it in.  I’m happy to report that all were able to do it.
