Buttermilk Pie

2 9-inch pie crusts, unbaked
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
6 eggs, beaten
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted
1 cup buttermilk
the zest of one lemon.
Mix sugar, flour and salt. 
Add eggs, butter, buttermilk, lemon zest and vanilla.
 Mix well and pour into two unbaked pie crusts and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees (check them at 50 minutes- if they’re too jiggly put them back in for a few more minutes. 
They shouldn’t jiggle very much at all when they’re done).
 If the tops are getting too brown, cover loosely with foil for the remainder of baking time. 
Let cool for at least 1 hour before slicing.
 I like mine ice cold, so I put in the fridge overnight before serving.
