I have read and seen pictures of some delicious pies in the recent days and I wanted to make my own. Aswin found a recipe in a vegetarian magazine in the public library and during our lunch trip to the farmer's market we picked up some cherries. The stage was set for the buttermilk and cherry pie. Here are the post taste notes :) It has a rich custardy texture and taste and not too sweet - something I like in a pie. I will recommend this to anyone.
I used a readymade crust but you can make it from scratch. Indira describes the method for making a crust perfectly in her peach pie recipe or you can see the step-by-step process here.
1 and 1/2 cups of buttermilk
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cherries - stemmed and pitted
3 tspoon all purpose flour
2 tbspoon butter
few drops of vanilla essence
pinch of cinnamon
Put the cherries in circle in the bottom of the pie shell.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together.
Pour it slowly in the pie shell.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Put the pie in a pan and bake for about 40 minutes at
350 F or till a toothpick comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. Slice and serve.
