Southern Buttermilk Pie

I have no idea where I came across the original recipe. I have changed a few things around since I first found it though. This is something I make when I have buttermilk leftover from another recipe.

I use one 9-inch deep-dish but you could probably use 2 smaller pie pans but the pies would be a bit thinner.
