To make buttermilk custard: In a large mixing bowl combine ¼ c. softened butter with 1 1/3 c. white sugar. Beat until creamy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating until yellow disappears. Mix in vanilla, then 2 Tbsp. flour. Combine thoroughly then pout in buttermilk, beating until smooth.
Fit pastry into pie pan and prick the bottom with a fork. Spoon apples over crust then pour buttermilk custard over it. Bake in preheated oven to 30 minutes.
