Treats from Faculty Bakers

Buttermilk Pie

World Baking Day is May 17. What better reason to ask a dozen Arts & Sciences faculty bakers for a favorite recipe? Not that we needed a reason — they were happy to share. So grab an apron, turn on your oven, and get ready to bake!

Buttermilk Pie

Carrie Freshour, assistant professor
Department of Geography

I got this recipe from a cookbook by Nicole Taylor, who writes about Black Southern Foodways and culinary traditions. During research with women poultry workers and their families I sat for an oral history with her about her experiences growing up in Georgia, in what she calls "Black Athens." I grew up in rural Northwest Georgia, in a giant multi-racial family eating buttermilk biscuits and cornbread but never pie. This recipe is a small piece of what I learned from Nicole Taylor, served best over long kitchen-table conversations after a warm meal together. See recipe for buttermilk pie.
