Is it too early to think about pies for Thanksgiving? This is one of my top restaurant favorites! Bubba’s Famous Buttermilk Pie in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Because I love this pie so much, I decided last fall to come up a recipe that is pretty darn close. It has a delicious custard filling, and is served with fresh lemons and whipped cream. I am wishing I had some right now…. I better get baking!
Here’s the recipe just in case you’re in the mood for pie too!

Bubba’s Buttermilk Pie

1 – 9 inch pie crust
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 T flour

Pinch of salt
1 lemon sliced into wedges
