Buttermilk and Honey Pie

A few weekends ago, Richard and I went to Piebird in downtown Raleigh for dinner. It’s one of my favorite coffee and dessert spots, but their savory pies are equally good!

He and I both love the sweet/salty combination, so we ended up ordering an entire pie for dessert – yep, fatties, I know. We ordered the Honey and Sea Salt Pie, and nommed on it for the next couple of days.

Okay, maybe just the next day.

Give us a break, though. We weren’t total fatties — I gave some to my parents.

Anyways, I just HAD to recreate this pie. With a little help from my Pinterest page, I found a recipe from the blog A Beautiful Mess and it seemed to fit the bill.

Whisk the eggs, sugar, and honey. Yes, you can still see our painter’s tape…

Then stir in the remaining ingredients and pour into your favorite pie crust (I used Pillsbury). Bake at 350°F for 40-45 minutes until the sides are golden brown and the pie is set (it will still have a slight jiggle in the center).

Allow to fully cool before serving — I did not do this, because I have no will power.

After plating, I generously sprinkled our slices with flaky sea salt, yum… This super-easy pie certainly satisfied our sweet/salty cravings. Plus, it seems perfect for an easy Easter dessert!

Happy Monday!
