Preheat oven to 325°. In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs and butter and beat until frothy. Add the sugar and flour and mix. Add the buttermilk, salt, VANILLA, LEMON EXTRACT and MINCED LEMON PEEL and stir to combine. Pour into the pie crust. Bake at 325° for 10 minutes and then raise the heat to 350° for 50 minutes.
Pie Crust: Use a fork or your fingers to blend the butter with the flour and salt. Once it looks like peas mixed with crumbles, drizzle in the milk and use the fork or a spoon to blend it together. All the milk may not be needed. It should just stick together enough that you can pat it into a disc shape. Cover in plastic wrap and chill 30 minutes before rolling out. On a well-floured surface, roll the disc from the center to the outer edge with a well-floured rolling pin. Add more flour if needed. Roll until the circle is larger than your pie pan. The chilling time is just about perfect for making the ingredients for the filling.
