    My mom made a different variation of this pie (Pure Southern!), and because it is not such a "common" pie, I always look at anyone else's recipes for them. The buttermilk in my mom's pie isn't a noticeable flavor, but acts as a thickener. Thanks for posting this one, it looks really good and different!
