This chocolate buttermilk pie is made using EB eggs for a rich and creamy dessert everyone will love! A custardy chocolate filling gets its tangy flavor from the addition of buttermilk. It’s baked until just set then served topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I use a store-bought pie crust for a shortcut!

1 store-bought pie crust

4 Eggland's Best eggs, large

1½ cups granulated sugar

1 cup low-fat buttermilk
