  1. Preheat oven to 370F (175C); line 9”x13” pyrex baking dish with foil.
  2. For pastry: In mixer, cream butter; add sugar and lemon peel and beat until light and fluffy; combine flour, salt and cornstarch in small bowl; mix to blend; add to butter and mix just until dough starts coming together; press dough into baking dish, forming 1 inch high edges; pierce all over with fork.
  3. Bake until starting to colour, piercing with fork if pastry begins to puff during baking, about 40 minutes; remove from oven, maintaining oven temperature.
