Prepare crumb crust but use 2 tablespoons sugar instead of ¼ cup and 4 tablespoons butter.*(Shortbread cookies are made with butter and sugar, so you will need to use less butter and sugar in the crumb crust recipe to prevent the crust from being to soggy.) Chill crust while preparing filling.
Preheat oven to 350. In small bowl, cream together sweetened condensed milk and peach preserves until smooth and creamy.
In separate bowl, beat egg yolk’s about 3 minutes add lemon zest. Combine the egg yolk mixture to the condensed milk and peach preserve filling beat additional 2 minutes. Pour filling into prepared crumb crust.
