My mother's recipe - my favorite food in the world. When I eat it I get that blissed-out happy look normally reserved for chocolate truffle commercials. Perfect for lemon meringue pie, lemon tarts, meringue shells and berries, anything that calls for a lemon filling.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine egg yolks, egg and sugar in a double boiler (or just place the ingredients in a heat-safe bowl and place the bowl over a pot of boiling water, making sure the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water - it's the steam that does the cooking). Mix well.
  2. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice and margarine.
  3. Cook over simmering water, stirring constantly, for 10-15 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
  4. Remove from heat; cool.
  5. Use when cooled or spoon into a container and cover tightly.
