Every farm housewife made her own butter and with large quantities of
buttermilk to use up, this came to be a popular recipe.

1 c white sugar
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
2 c fresh buttermilk
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp lemon extract

Combine sugar, salt and flour in the top of a double boiler.  Add beaten egg
yolks, butter and buttermilk.  Cook until thick.  Remove from heat and cool.
Flavour with lemon extract.  Pour into a baked pie shell and cover with
meringue.  Bake until delicately brown in a 325 degree oven for 10 minutes.
