- Set oven to 300F and prepare water bath.
- Beat butter and sugar.
- Add flour, milk, lemon juice & rind, and yolks. Beat.

That is 5+++++ Made this for Fall 09 PAC Premie Adoption. OMG this is do decadently delicious, and will be the most perfect treat for my DGS who visits from his Army Base twice a year. The only thing I did different was place a small cloth in the bottom of the pan of water so the ramekins wouldn't shift around and served this with a small bit of ice cream on top. The only things I will do differently is double the recipe, and grease the ramekins. Thank You so very, very much for a most wonderful dessert. Lynda
