  • Combine sugar and lemon zest in a bowl. Using your hands, rub zest into sugar to release the natural oils of the zest. Add flour and mix well.

  • Whip in buttermilk, lemon juice, eggs, butter, and lemon extract. Pour batter into pie crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and bake until center is slightly jiggly in center, 50 to 65 minutes. Custard will continue to set as pie cools.
