Directions:
Beat, in a container, the egg with the sugar. Add the butter, the lemon rind, the flour and the baking powder. Blend everything and, if necessary, add a bit more flour to make the dough workable. Knead for about 10 minutes. Put aside a cup of the dough and roll out the remainder. Place the rolled dough in pie pan and make a crust along the edge. Spread the jam over the bottom pie crust. Roll out the remaining pie crust and cut into strips. Use these strips to decorate the top of the pie or use the dough to write a message. Bake at about 350 for about 30 minutes until brown.
