Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Place pie crust into a pie pan, cutting off any excess overhang. Refrigerate crust while you make the filling.
  2. Add sugar, salt, cornmeal, and cornstarch to the bowl of a stand mixer or a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the eggs (4 eggs and 1 yolk). Beat on medium to medium-high until the mixture is pale and sugar is fully incorporated. With the mixer running, add the lemon juice. Then pour in melted butter in a thin stream. Continue beating for about 30 more seconds.
  3. Pour the filling into chilled pie shell.
  4. Bake the pie on the bottom shelf of the 375-degree oven for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the center is set. The top should be golden brown.
  5. Remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool before cutting and serving.
