    flower7's Note:

    From the Farm Journal's Complete Home Baking Book, pg 300. This was different from other buttermilk pie recipes already posted. I did increase the lemon zest a bit when I made it (probably closer to 1 tsp). Per the cookbook: "A lemony custard pie with the texture of a cheesecake, topped with a sprinkle of ground nutmeg."

      There's always that one, magical item on the Thanksgiving menu that stands out
      over all the rest: this one! Made as written (except for doubling the amount of lemon zest) and using a standard homemade pie crust. I can best describe the texture of the pie as somewhere halfway between soft cheese cake (New York-style?) and a lemon pudding. Wicked good-especially with a cup of freshly brewed coffee...for breakfast....! ;)
