    It was perfect as written, less sugar would be mouth-puckering! I added a pinch of turmeric for coloring since I didn’t have food coloring.

    Hey peeps, is it ok to just add extra lemon juice and not use lemon zest?? Thx

    I made this to use as doughnut filling. I followed the recipe to the letter. Very delicious! Be sure not to walk away even for a second because it gets thick very quickly. I actually let it go a little too far, but once the butter, zest, and juice went in it was perfect. I will be making this a lot, as I'm a big-time lemon junkie. Thanks so much for sharing this simple and quick recipe!

    Excellent lemon filling. Followed recipe and well written instructions, and had no trouble with the gel thickening. I used a small amount of Lemon Yellow gel food coloring, because the uncolored gel didn't look very appetizing. I used filling for 2 dozen cupcakes, (using #58213,Lemon pillow cake) Excellent results! Thanks for posting.
