  1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and zest.
  2. Cut in the butter, until it resembles coarse meal.
  3. Add the egg and the vanilla and toss the mixture until incorporated.
  4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead very lightly, forming into a disk.
  5. Chill, wrapped in plastic at least 1 hour or overnight.
  6. Let the dough stand at room temperature until softened, but still firm enough to roll out.
