Line crust with aluminum foil, and weigh it down with dried beans, rice or
pie weights. Bake 15 minutes in 375 degree oven. Remove bean or rice and
foil, and brush crust with 1 egg beaten with 1 teaspoon water. Bake until
golden, about 7 minutes.

rind 3 ounces melted butter

Prepare crust and bake. Mix sugar and eggs until well-blended. Add lemon
juice and rind; blend. Pour in melted butter, and mix to blend. Pour into
prebaked shell and bake at 350 degrees 15 to 20 minutes, just until set.
Cool completely. Garnish with whipped cream.
