I suggest you to use a kitchen scale.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, mix butter with sifted icing sugar, lemon zest and almond meal.
Add lightly beaten whole egg and mix to combine.
Add the sifted flour with salt and mix just to combine.
Roll the dough gently until you have an even 2.5 mm thickness.

Refrigerate for 8 hours.

The day after, place a 18 cm tart ring on a perforated baking tray with perforated baking sheet.
Gently ease the dough into the sides of the ring, use your fingertips to press the pastry into the edges and up the wall of the tin.
Using the knife, remove the overhanging pastry.
Refrigerate for 2 hours, then freeze.
Heat fan oven at 320F - 160°C.
Bake the pastry ring for 17/18 minutes.
Remove the pastry ring and let completely cool.
Set aside to assemble.
