This is a little twist on the classic pumpkin pie using buttermilk instead of evaporated milk. It gives this pie a country custard taste that's rich and balances the sweetness of the sugar. We also love the use of the brown sugar in this recipe. It gives it a caramel goodness that can't be beat. We garnished our pumpkin pie with a few white chocolate shavings to really add an elegant holiday touch.
