Buttermilk Pie Bars

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal. This month I was assigned the blog Smells Like Brownies. Another great blog with so many delicious looking recipes, although my search for what to make was cut short as soon as Randal saw these Buttermilk Pie Bars.  He really loves buttermilk pie and I never make it, so I think this was his chance to get his fix and a new take on one of his favourites at the same time.  The recipe calls for it to be served cold, but Randal liked it better warmed slightly.

1 stick salted butter, softened
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup icing sugar

Custard filling
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp salted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8 inch pan.

To make the crust, in the bowl of an electric mixer combine the butter and icing sugar and beat together.  Add in the flour and mix well.  Press into the pan, prick the crust all over with a fork and bake for 20 minutes.

To make the custard filling, in the bowl of an electric mixer whisk the eggs and sugar until pale yellow.  Add in the butter, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour and mix together, finally mix in the buttermilk.

Pour the filling over the crust and bake for 30 minutes.  Leave to cool on a cooling rack then refrigerate for an hour before serving.
