In a buttermilk pie?
I don't use buttermilk very often, so I don't know.
But, I use cream/light/heavy way beyond it's experation date.
I find that the dates, are for observation. If my cream begins to taste or smell like it's not fresh, then I toss it.
I usually have used it about a week longer than the experation date.
I made delicious buttermilk pancakes this AM with product whose "Sell By" date was Jul 21. No ill effects (so far) and am rolling out pizza dough for tonight's grilled pizza feast. At least, if I keel over, it will be with another great meal in my tummy.
I actually DRINK lots of buttermilk and have had buttermilk weeks beyond the sell date with never a problem.
