I am on vacation and just had dinner at the Branding Iron BBQ and Steak house in Mena, Arkansas. They had an interesting pie on their dessert menu. They called it "Bearcat Pie". I just had to ask what it was.
Apparently, it is a buttermilk pie with coconut and pecans added.
Now, I have never baked or even eaten a buttermilk pie but it is a custard pie made with sugar, buttermilk, eggs and flavorings (sometimes they add flour sometimes not) poured into a pie shell and baked.
This Bearcat pie had coconut and pecans added. Sadly, I didn't try the pie.
I was wondering if a buttermilk pie is any good. I assume it is. I was also wondering what other kinds of variations are there for buttermilk pie.
Have you chowhounders got any interesting variations?
