    Awesome Pie! Thank you for posting. I tried 3 other pie's off of RZ and this one was surely the TOP! This should be listed as Lemon Buttermilk Pie as the zest definitely makes a lemon pie out of this one. This one is definitely Restaurant quality! Made the second time with a normal crust instead of the graham as I was looking for an old fashion type pie.

    This is a light, tangy and lemony pie. I'm not much for desserts as most are high up on the gag factor due to too much sugar. But this pie is great. I think the name of it may make some people run away screaming but believe me it is simple and tasty and you will want more than you should eat. :)
