Buttermilk Pie

My mom used to make these pies all the time for my daddy. They were his favorite pies so I decided that I would try to make him one for his birthday. This is the recipe that my mom used. I have no idea where she got it so....
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 T. flour (self-rising)
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c. butter
1 c. buttermilk
2 t. vanilla
deep dish pie shell, poke holes in the bottom of crust
Mix sugar & flour, stir in eggs, add butter & milk, add vanilla.
Bake at 425 F. for 10 minutes
then bake at 350 F. for 35 minutes
OR until golden brown on the top
*Refrigerate overnight for best results
So, I made this pie, actually I made 3 of them. Mom says to make each batch seperately, do not mix up more than one at the same time, for some reason they don't turn out right. Anyhow, I used stick butter and for some reason all the butter pooled on top of the pies, that is why it looks funky with a crater on it. Mom says that she used the butter in the bowl, she thinks it has more water in it or something so use the bowl butter. And I believe she said that she used a mixer, I hand mixed it so all the butter was chunky and at the top.
It is very very sweet! It doesn't taste like buttermilk, it was actually pretty good!
