Sugar high as a flag on the Fourth of July.

Enjoy this simple summery delicious pie!

What you need:
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp flour
1/4 cup of butter, melted (half a stick)
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsps lemon zest (two lemons)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust
1 cup cold, heavy whipping cream
Fresh berries!

Preheat oven to 325.  In a bowl, beat the eggs, add in sugar and lemon zest.  
Once combined, beat in flour and melted butter.  
Beat in the vanilla and buttermilk.

Pour the filling into your uncooked pie shell.
Bake for about 50 min, or until the center of the custard has can still be wiggly.

Let cool and expect the custard to deflate a bit.

whip the chilled cream until it holds a stiff peak.
There's no need to add sugar to the whipped cream, trust us the pie is sweet enough!

Add the whipped cream to the cooled pie and pile on the berries!

Have a safe and delicious Fourth!
