    Chrissyo's Note:

    A nice butter to spread between a sponge cake, for tartlets or to put on your toast for breakfast. It is a great home made gift for Christmas.

      Every bit as good as my grandma's recipe (actually I think her recipe was identical!) Truly delicious and sooo good slathered on toast (also good on pancakes!) Thanks so much for posting this one!

      ChrissyO - What are you trying to do to me??!! This stuff is incredible! It may never make it onto my toast in the morning because I will be eating this straight out of the bowl! This is a lemony-custard type of spread. This will take about 20 minutes over a low heat to thicken. Makes 4 cups - that probably won't last the day ;) Fantastic, Chrissy!! Thank you for sharing!
