2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup melted butter

3 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

1 (9-inch) unbaked pie shell

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, cornstarch,butter and eggs. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until well-blended. Add buttermilk; mix well. Pour into pie shell.

Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until set. Cool at room temperature.

Note: When we make this pie, we add a handful of pecan halves; really adds to the flavor.
