  • 1 1 /2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup salted butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten

Pie Crust

  • 1 1 /4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 /4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco, chilled
  • 3 tablespoons ice water

Whisk the flour and salt together in a medium size bowl. With a pastry blender, cut in the cold shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle 1 to 2 tablespoons ice water over flour. Toss mixture with a fork to moisten, adding more water a few drops at a time until the dough comes together.

Gently gather dough particles together into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for at least 30 minutes before rolling.

Roll out dough, and put in a pie plate. Fill with desired filling and bake.
