A perennial China Moon favorite, this tart has a smooth texture, a lustrous look, and a zingy taste. It is also exceedingly easy to make. For do-ahead occasions, the lemon butter may be made a week in advance and refrigerated. Simply reheat it in a double boiler, stirring until the mixture falls in ribbons from a spoon, before pouring it into the shell.
