for crust - in large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar and butter. beat 
at medium speed, scraping bowl often until mixture is crumbly - 2 to 3 
minutes. (if using food processor, combine same ingredients in 
processor bowl, making sure butter is cold. pulse 10-15 times. remove 
to mixer bowl.) make well in center of flour mixture and pour in egg, 
reserving egg white for later. blend with fork until incorporated 
thoroughly. mixture will be very dry. press dough to 1/4" thickness on 
bottom and sides of 10" tart pan with removable bottom. chill for 1 
hour. heat oven to 400 degrees f. brush crust with beaten egg white 
and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. cool.

sugar, grated rind and juice and beat until smooth. spread evenly over 
prepared crust and refrigerate.
