Lemon Buttermilk Custard Pie

My Grandma always made this in addition to any other pie she was baking. After she passed away in 1984, the recipe was no where to be found. She must have had it memorized! After several years of baking every recipe I could find, I decided to develop my own. This is good warm or at room temp, but if you can wait, it is better the next day after spending the night in the refrigerator! I taught cooking classes for several years and this was a favorite with my students.
