Creamy Buttermilk Pie from Farm Journal

“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."”
