Course: Dessert
Servings: 1
Author: Countryside Cravings
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice about 2 large lemons
  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large heavy bottomed sauce pan. Cook over medium heat and whisk constantly for about 8 minutes or until it thickens slightly. DO NOT BOIL. Immediately pour through a mesh strainer into a heat safe container. Place plastic wrap or waxed paper over the top to prevent a film. Refrigerate (it will continue to thicken as it cools). Keeps for 1-2 weeks.
