- 4 large eggs
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- finely grated zest of 1 lemon
- 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 baked 9-inch pie shell
In a large mixing bowl beat eggs and sugar until light and lemon-colored. Beat in flour, then buttermilk, melted butter, lemon peel, lemon juice, and vanilla.
Pour mixture into pie shell.
Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 20 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 and continue baking for about 20 minutes longer, or until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center. The filling will jiggle only slightly when done.
