  • 1 9-inch pie crust , from scratch or a refrigerated pack of two
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Place pie crust in a pie plate and crimp edges as desired. Chill while you make the filling.
  • Whisk the rest of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.
  • Place pie crust on a cookie sheet. Fill with filling. Place strips of foil around the edges of the crust or use a pie crust shield.
  • Place pie in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the top is golden brown (it looks like creme brûlée on top) and only slightly jiggly in the center. Cool completely before slicing.
  • Store, covered, in refrigerator. It slices easiest when it’s been chilled and tastes delicious cold or room temperature!
