DIRECTIONS

  • Juice the lemons and grate the rind from two of them.
  • In another bowl, beat together sugar and eggs until fluffy; add the lemon juice.
  • Pour the lemon mixture into a saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly.
  • Gradually add the butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. When butter is melted, raise the heat to medium, continuing to stir until mixture is thickened. Stir in the zest.
  • Store in the refrigerator. Use as filling or frosting, as well as with scones.
  • Variations: substitute lime or orange juice and zest for the lemon.
