Pumpkin Buttermilk Pie recipe, from Michelle @vintagehomedesigns.com
This is my Pumpkin Buttermilk Pie, cooling after baking. My recipe was not the same as hers, but it’s included below. I also topped mine with whipped cream and cinnamon.

Cinnamon Whipped Cream
- Add whipping cream, sugar and ground cinnamon to a mixing bowl.
- Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat for 3-4 minutes or until stiff peaks form.
I included Michelle’s pie recipe because of her twist on Thanksgiving’s traditional pumpkin pie recipe. I thought the buttermilk would add a “zing” to the pie, maybe even a little bitterness, but was pleased that it did not. Very creative, and I admire that.
My pie was also quick and easy, VERY easy, I took several short-cuts but made sure to use the buttermilk and topped it with whipped cream and cinnamon.
Right out of the oven, still rippled but set well after 1 hour’s baking time.
*Beth’s Quick Pumpkin Buttermilk Pie*:
1 can of Libby’s Pumpkin Pie mix, 30 oz.
2 large eggs, lightly blended (I used a whisk)
2/3 C. Buttermilk
In a 9″ Pyrex pie pan, sprayed with Pam cooking spray, I rolled out 1 Pillsbury’s Pie Crust, pre-made, and laid it carefully in the pie pan.
Bake according to directions on the can, except
I substituted Buttermilk instead of the evaporated milk (Milnot or Carnation)
The pie took an hour to bake until set, and a toothpick came out “clean”, then I continued cooling it on a baking rack for about another hour.
Tomorrow morning, I’m having pie for breakfast! WITH the cinnamon whipped cream, how is that different than cereal and milk?
Hope you join me on the blog tomorrow, with your coffee cup, and you can look at the beautiful pie Michelle made, and my “attempt” to try something new.
I so admire Michelle’s work that I wanted to share it with you all.
Sharing what inspires me, is important to me. Hopefully, we’ll find areas that we agree on, and we can learn from each other.
Have a great week, what’s left of it!
