Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.

On a lightly floured surface, unroll pie crust. Roll into a 12 inch circle. Press into a 9 inch pie plate; crimp edges, if desired. Line crust with parchment paper; place pie weights over parchment. Bake for 6 minutes. Cool; remove pie weights and parchment paper.

Reduce oven temperature to 350.

In a large bowl, combine sugar, cornmeal, flour, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, melted butter, lime zest, lime juice, and buttermilk until smooth. Add to sugar mixture; whisking to combine. Pour mixture into prepared crust.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until center of pie is set, covering with aluminum foil to prevent excess browning, if necessary. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Garnish with confectioners' sugar and lime slices, if desired. Store pie, covered in refrigerator up to 3 days.
