DIRECTIONS

  • In an 8-cup Pyrex measuring cup mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt; add in the egg yolks, half and half cream, lemon juice and food colouring (if using) whisk until blended.
  • Place in the microwave and cook on HIGH for about 5-6 minutes or until the mixture is thickened (removing and whisking every other minute to make certain that the mixture is completely mixed and smooth).
  • Add in the butter and lemon rind; mix until the butter is melted.
  • Pour into a baked and cooled 9-inch pie shell.
  • Cover with plastic wrap directly on top of the filling and chill until cooled.
