Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Note* I love a flakey crust so have found this to help, while baking keep a beaten egg white handy, brush the unbaked pie shell bottom and sides with the beaten egg white and bake that for 7-minutes, let it cool then proceed on.
Beat eggs and butter till lite and lemon colored. Sprinkle in the remaining dry ingredients. Then add the evaporated milk and vanilla.
Pour this into the pie shell and bake for 55-65 minutes until set.
NOTE* You can make this a lemon chess pie by adding 1/4 cup lemon juice and the zest from one lemon.
