Butter pastry tried and true

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Unsifted Flour
3 tablespoons Sugar
¼ teaspoon Lemon Peel; Grated
¼ cup Butter
2 Whole Egg Yolks

1. Combine flour, sugar and lemon peel.

2. Cut butter into chunks; add to flour mixture.

3. Rub mixture with fingers until butter lumps are no longer longer distinguishable.

4. Add egg yolks; work well until it holds a smooth, non-crumbly ball.

5. Press evenly over bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie pan; flute top edge.

6. Bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes.

This buttery crust requires no rolling. Just press it in the pan. So good with lemon meringue or fruit fillings.
