  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Grated zest from one lemon

  1. Make a homemade pie crust and place in a 9-inch pie plate. If using pre-made frozen, thaw.
  2. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer beat eggs and sugar until light yellow in color, the mixture will be slightly thick.
  4. Beat the flour in first, then the buttermilk, melted butter, lemon zest, lemon juice and vanilla extract.
  5. Pour the mixture into unbaked pie crust. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes.
  6. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F and continue baking until the center is set and barely jiggles, about 20 to 25 minutes longer.
  7. Cool on rack.
