It takes about 2 days to make with chilling the dough and everything but, it tastes so good you won't mind the extra time you put in.

- 1For the dough, pulse butter, sugar, egg and lemon zest in a food processor with metal blade just a few times to break up the butter a bit.
- 2With machine off, add the flour.
- 3Pulse again just until a dough forms.
- 4(Or use a pastry cutter in a large bowl.) Transfer dough to a floured work surface and gently knead a few times to bring it together.
- 5Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour, for for up to 1 day.
- 6On a floured surface, roll the dough into a circle 1/8-inch thick.
- 7Fit dough into a 10-inch tart pan with a removable bottom, pressing dough to the bottom of the pan to eliminate air bubbles.
- 8Trim excess dough from the edges and prick the bottom a dozen times with a fork.
- 9Chill until firm, about 1 hour.
