  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch pie dish.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs until frothy. Add the butter, sugar, and flour, and beat until smooth.
  • Add the buttermilk, lemon juice, vanilla, and nutmeg, and mix well.
  • Pour the mixture into the uncooked pie crust, and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the pie is mostly set with the center jiggling slightly when shaken.
  • Remove from the oven and let the pie cool on a wire rack for 1 to 2 hours before serving.
  • Top with powdered sugar, if using.
  • Cut and serve.
