Does this taste almost like Custard Pie ? My Mom used to make it with a little buttermilk.

Hi there! Yes, this tastes like a custard pie. :) Enjoy!

This sounds so yummy, I am going to make one, my only problem is I can never make a good pie crust. Can you tell me how to make a good one, Thank you

Hi Joann, This recipe calls for a pre-made refrigerated pie crust, but if you want to make your own pie crust, then you should check out our pie crust recipes by typing in "pie crust" in the search bar above. We've also got a great "How to Decorate Pie Crusts" video if you want to fancy up your pie crust edges. :)

I made this pie tonight and it is the best pie I ever had crunchy on the top and very very delicious I love butter milk. Pie

Just came out of the oven smells heavenly. Did not use cinnamon but used nutmeg instead waiting to cool.

This sounds great. Reminds me of chess pie.

What is 'chess pie'? Do you have a recipe for that? I'd love to know how to make that.

A chess pie is kind of like a custard pie, but what makes it different is the addition of cornmeal. We have on recipe for a Lemon Chess Pie that you can check out:

I haven't tried it yet, but I'm optimistic.

Nothing is more down-home than the wonderful flavors of backwoods country cooking, so it's only fitting that these Hillbilly Baked Beans are one of our most popular slow cooker potluck recipes. They can even be reheated on a grill for a smoky taste that can't be beat!
