Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees. Take a fork and poke holes in the bottom of your pie shell. Bake the pie shell for 12-14 minutes. Inspect the pie shell at 6 minutes to make sure it hasn’t puffed up, pat down with a fork if it has. Remove from the oven when it’s golden brown. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, eggs, flour and salt, then mix at a medium speed for one minute. Add the lemon extract, lemon juice and the butter and mix for another minute. Add the evaporated milk and mix on high for a minute. Pour the mixture into your pre-baked pie shell and bake for another 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with powdered sugar and let cool.
