It's basically just eggs, flour, sugar, buttermilk, and butter with a lil' bit of vanilla.

In fact, buttermilk pies were traditionally made by farmers who didn't have enough fruit on hand for your standard apple or berry pies.

As such, they're sometimes known as "desperation pies."

But ain't nothin' desperate about this, unless you're desperate to get this pie in your belly, pronto.
