Paired with a Fruity Ale
I think this boring Wednesday needs a little pie in it’s life. Don’t you agree?
I know what you are thinking. Pies are totally for the winter months, and I agree with you to a certain point. It’s not my favorite thing in the world to turn the oven on when the temps get above 90 degrees F, but sometimes it’s totally necessary to take advantage of some seasonal produce!
While we are somewhat out of citrus season, I still had to share this recipe for buttermilk pie with citrus. I love this pie you guys, and it’s one of my go-to desserts for a quick summer picnic potluck. When I first found a similar recipe in a magazine, I knew I had to recreate it and let me tell you that it was seriously love at first bite. It literally tastes like summer. I’m not kidding you. It’s like taking a bite out of summer. It’s so bright and packed full of citrusy flavor, that you will be begging for a second piece.
Make this buttermilk pie for a summer picnic. Your guests will love you for it! I had a hard time coming up with a beer pairing for this recipe. It’s hard not to get specific and overwhelm you with specific beers. Citrusy desserts aren’t the easiest recipes to pair beer with. I usually tend to go with a fruity ale of some kind. I think Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch is a great one for this recipe. It has a lot going on. Wine notes are prominent as well as some spice and other fruit. You can go any route you want though. If you have recommendations for a good beer pairing for this pie, I would love to hear them!
Recipe is below! Have a wonderful day everyone! xo
