How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350F and generously grease an 8" square pan.
  • In a coffee grinder, process the sugar to a fine powder. Add to a bowl with the flour and nutmeg.
  • Add the shortening and blend with a fork or pastry blender until crumbly, then add the vanilla and water and mix until the dough comes together.
  • Press into the bottom of the pan and brush generously with the egg white.
  • Bake 25 minutes. Remove from oven (leave oven on) and place into the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat together the eggs, egg yolk, sugar, lemon zest, flour, custard powder, salt and lemon juice.
  • Pour onto the base.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top is set and golden.
  • Cool to room temperature, then cover and chill overnight before cutting and serving.
