I vowed to make it one day, but forgot about it until months later when I saw another version where it was called Magnolia Pie. It got my attention and I was determined to make one, but didn’t know where to begin. My last buttermilk pie was decent (unlike the photo), but it had pecans, and as much as I love pecans, I wanted something smoother and more basic.
