Nectarine Custard Pie

Hello Lovelies! 

Do you love nectarines?!  Here is a recipe for a nectarine custard pie that I know you are going to love.  You serve it cold so it's very refreshing.  I made this pie Sunday.  There were three pieces left over.  Tonight there are no pieces left over.  Hubby and I polished them off about an hour ago watching The Bachelorette.  This is my life : )

You will need:

4 cups chopped nectarines (about 5 large ).  You can leave the skin on.

3/4 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
refrigerated ready-to-use pie crust

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9 inch pie plate.  Line with refrigerated pie crust (uncooked).

Whisk together the buttermilk, sugar, eggs, flour, and salt. 

Add vanilla.

Spread the chopped nectarines in the pie plate. 

Add the buttermilk mixture. 

Bake 40 minutes or until just set, covering the edges with foil to prevent over-browning. 
**As you can see I forget this step**...Oops!

Cool completely, and then refrigerate. 

Serve cold with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I've been thinking about how any fruit would work in this pie.  Strawberry?  Pineapple?  Maybe mango????  Oh, they are going to loooove me at the farmers market this year!
