Buttermilk Pie

Have buttermilk lurking in your refrigerator and needing to use it up?  I did, and I made this.

Buttermilk Pie
Adapted from Southern Living

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 tablespoons flour
3 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked 9-inch pastry shell 

Cream butter at high speed of an electric mixer; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add flour, and beat until smooth. Add eggs, and beat until blended. Add buttermilk, vanilla and salt; beat well. Pour filling into pastry shell. Bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes; reduce heat to 350, and bake an additional 40-45 minutes or until set. Cool to room temperature and then chill thoroughly before serving.

It was rich and delicious and I would make it again!
