I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Lemon Buttermilk Pie

Light and lemony custard paired with blueberry compote in a sweet graham crumb crust.

1 1/2 cups graham crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
6 tbsps butter, melted
4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsps flour
1 1/2 cups buttermilk (or milk + 3 tsps vinegar)
1/4 cup butter, melted
zest of 1 lemon
3 tbsps lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla

Blueberry Compote:
1 cup blueberries
2 tbsps lemon juice
zest 1 lemon
2 tsps sugar

For the crust combine graham crumbs, sugar and 6 tbsps melted butter and press into a 9" pie plate. Chill in refrigerator. NOTE: If you want a deeper pie use an 8" pie plate. The cooking time my increase a little.

Beat the eggs and sugar together until light yellow and fluffy. Incorporate the flour then add the buttermilk, butter, zest, juice and vanilla. Pour into the crust.

Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes then reduce heat to 325°F and continue baking for another 20-25 minutes or until set. The center may still be a little jiggly but will be ok once cooled.

For the blueberry compote combine the ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer for 6-8 minutes. Cool.

Once the pie and compote are cooled slice the pie and serve with a heaping spoonful of blueberry compote.
