Make pastry and roll or press dough evenly over bottom and up sides of
9-inch pie pan.

Melt butter in microwave; set aside. Whisk eggs and sugar in medium-size
bowl until blended. Add peel and slowly stir in butter and lemon juice
until incorporated. Pour into crust. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes or until top

underdone, but will set as it cools. When cool, refrigerate. Before
serving, sprinkle powdered sugar on top.
