    Directions:

    1. 1
      Whisk the flour, salt and lemon rind in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Cut in the lard with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mix resembles a light, floury crumble.
    3. 3
      Mix the lemon juice and egg yolk in a measuring cup and top with enough ice-cold water to the 1-cup line.
    4. 4
      Whisk the egg white until foamy.
    5. 5
      Make a well in the flour mixture.
    6. 6
      Add the egg yolk mixture to the flour mixture and gently fold 7–12 times by hand.
    7. 7
      While the mix is still a bit floury, add in the whipped egg white and gently press, fold, and press again until all the flour combines into a paste-like ball.
    8. 8
      If you’re making butter tarts, divide the dough into 2 balls, wrap with plastic wrap, and chill for at least 1 hour before using.
    9. 9
      If you’re making 10" crusts, divide it into 3 before wrapping and chilling.
