  • 1/8 teaspoon salt omit if using salted butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons powdered buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla bean paste or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Garnish: Lightly sweetened whipped cream & fresh berries


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Have your pie shell ready to go.
  • Whisk the sugar and butter together until smooth.
  • Whisk in the eggs, one by one, until mixture is smooth.
  • Mix the buttermilk powder and flour in a small bowl, then add to the egg mixture and stir until smooth. Stir in nutmeg, vanilla bean paste and water until smooth.
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until almost set. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool 1 hour.
  • Chill thoroughly before serving (or not -- I like things chilled, but some prefer room temperature).
