If you are not a huge pumpkin spice person, then this Pumpkin Buttermilk Pie might be just what you needed when the cooler fall weather hits. I don’t know why the leaves changing color or the shorter days bring out the need for me to wrap my lips around a slice of this gem, but it never fails to call out to me!

The Best Pumpkin Buttermilk Pie Recipe Ever

This buttermilk pie is topped with an elegant pumpkin ganache and is easier than you might think to make one nine-inch pie. You can bake the buttermilk custard base ahead of time and then top it with the ganache as you see fit. The beauty of this recipe?

Switch It Up

You can tweak the flavor easily by switching out the flavor of the coffee creamer. Just think of the possibilities! Imagine this topped with a Chocolate mint ganache. This topped with a peppermint ganache. This topped with a Hazlenut ganache! You are only limited by your selections of coffee creamers. Ohhh- they even have Girl Scout Cookie flavors!


Just. Yum.

Make Your Own Buttermilk

Now, what if you don’t have buttermilk? A common way to make a buttermilk substitute is to add an acidic substance — typically lemon juice, vinegar, or cream of tartar — to milk. Alternatively, you can use plain yogurt, sour cream, kefir, or buttermilk powder as a substitute.

To make 1 cup of buttermilk, just take 1 Tablespoon of the acidic ingredient, say lemon juice, and put it into a 1 cup measuring cup. Now top it off with milk to make a full cup. That is it: easy-peasy.

I do want to say that since this is basically a custard pie, you will want to refrigerate any leftovers. They should keep for up to 4 days if in an air-tight container.
