2 sticks butter, soft
1 1/2 cups sugar
8 large egg yolks
3/4 cup strong brewed tea, cooled (I used Lipton)
1 tsp grated lemon zest
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
2 TBSP all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp cornmeal
1/2 tsp salt
Unbaked pie shell (I use Pillsbury)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat butter and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy.
Pour the mixture into crust and bake about 45 minutes, until set.
