Buttermilk Pie

After having the buttermilk pie at The Yesterday Cafe I had to try making it myself.  It's really easy but each slice (1/8 of pie) has 11 points plus.  I had a sliver for 4 PP.   I found a bunch of recipes but this is the one I decided to use and will make again:

Choo-Choo's Buttermilk Pie from The Dairy Hollow House Cookbook
by Crescent Dragonwagon

Taken directly from the book:
1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
Beat in:
2 rounded tbsp flour
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 tbsp vanilla
the grated rind of 2 lemon
Pour this into the unbaked pie shell and sprinkle liberally with
fresh ground nutmeg (or cardamom)
Bake 45 minutes.  It should be slightly browned but still a little liquid. Don't worry.  it will set deliciously as it cools; please don't overbake.
Glenna's note:  Bake until center temperature reaches 140 degrees on a meat thermometer. The center will still be slightly fluid but eggs set at 140 degrees so the pie will be done.  Do not overbake.
