This weekend I made a great buttermilk pie. Creamed butter/sugar add eggs / flour flavoring buttermilk and bake.
I want to reduce the calories. Is there a substitute that I can use with this custard like pie?
The recipe uses 1 stick of butter to 1 3/4 cups sugar
This is the complete recipe Buttermilk Pie
- 1 3/4 C. sugar
- 1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 C.) room temp.
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 3 T. all purpose flour
- 1 C. buttermilk
- 1 9" pie shell, unbaked
Cream together the sugar and butter till well blended. Beat in the eggs, 1 at a time, until the mixture is nice and smooth. Add in the vanilla, salt and flour. Beat in the buttermilk until well combined. Fill the pie shell with the buttermilk mixture, just to the top of the shell. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour 10 minutes – Let rest before serving
