Cinnamon Buttermilk Pie

I made this pie twice in one week - it was that good!  I used Trader Joe's ready-made pie crust found in the freezer section. I discovered this recipe on www.nutmegnanny.com. Enjoy!

Cinnamon Buttermilk Pie:

4 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter – melted
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla paste
2 teaspoon cinnamon (you can add more if you want)

Preheat oven 325 degrees

Beat eggs slightly. Add sugar and flour. Then add melted butter and mix well. Next add buttermilk, vanilla paste and cinnamon. Pour into graham shell and cook until custard is set – approximately 1 hour.

Graham Crust:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup white sugar
6 tablespoons butter – melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix all together and press into 9 inch pie plate. Pre-bake the crust 15 minutes at 350 degrees.

*If you like a firmer crust I would definitely recommend not doing a graham crust and instead using your favorite pie crust. Also, I made my pies into little tarts instead of one large 9 inch pie. Reduce cooking time by about 20 minutes if you do the same. The pies are ready when they are set but still a little jiggly. Like a pumpkin pie.
