19 inchunbaked frozen or homemade deep dish pie crust
1 ½cupgranulated sugar
¼cupall purpose flour
1 ¼cupwhole buttermilk (not fat free)
¼cupfresh lemon juice
1Tbspgrated lemon zest
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Place the pie crust on a baking sheet.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients, and mix with a hand mixer for 2 minutes until combined. Pour into the unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle the top lightly with additional nutmeg.
Bake for 15 minutes at 375°F, then lower the oven temperature to 325°F. Continue to bake for anther 30-40 minutes or until the center is set when gently shaken and the top is golden. Check the edges halfway through baking and cover the crust with aluminum foil to prevent over browning, if needed.
Chill for at least 6 hours or overnight thoroughly before slicing.
If using a frozen pie crust it isn't necessary to thaw the crust prior to filling.
