2 Tablespoon(s) Butter or margarine
1 Lemon, Grated peel only

Cheese crust, mix flour, salt and shortening with pastry blender until
mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese. Add water gradually and
mix lightly with fork to form dough. Divide pastry in halves and roll
out one half to fit 9-inch pie pan. Roll second half of pastry and cut

pastry strips across filling to make lattice top. Bake at 375F 30 to
