- Whisk in the milk, melted butter, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and lemon extract if using.
- Then slowly pour the filling into the cooled pie shell.
- Bake the pie on the center oven rack for about 45 to 50 minutes, turning it 180 degrees halfway through.
- When done, the top will be dark golden brown, and the filling will be set except for the very center, which may jiggle slightly when you tap the pan.
- Cool the pie on a wire rack.
- Serve it at room temperature or cover and chill until serving time. Makes 8 to 10 servings.
