This Lemon Cream does not contain yogurt or pudding or sour cream. It is simply the best lemon cream ever! You can use this to dip any fruit or top a cheesecake with it. Its use is limited only by your imagination. I LOVE this stuff!

- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄3 cup lemon juice concentrate (not lemonade)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 pint whipping cream (whipped)
- In a mixing bowl beat together eggs, 1/2 cup of the sugar and the lemon juice. Set aside.
- In a medium saucepan, combine remaining 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch; stir in water and cook over medium heat until thickened stirring constantly; remove from heat.
- Gradually stir in the egg mixture and mix together.

My MIL makes this for every party. She made it this w/e but had trouble finding her recipe so I told her I'd post it online. Sure enough it's already here. The only difference is that she uses 2 cups of cool whip instead of the whipping cream. And for my notes she uses ReaLemon brand lemon juice from concentrate.
