 Ingredients List

  • 5 Whole eggs
  • 5 Egg yolks
  • 2 c Sugar
  • 1 c Fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Lemons, grated zest only
  • 8 tb Sweet butter


COMBINE THE EGGS, EGG YOLKS and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat until
smooth. Add the lemon juice and lemon zest and mix. Place the bowl over a
pot of boiling water or in the top of a double boiler and stir vigorously
with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens. This mixture will not
curdle, so don't worry about overcooking it a little. Remove the bowl from
the boiling water and stir in the butter until melted. Refrigerated, this
will keep for up to 3 months.

TO MAKE A LEMON CUSTARD PIE: Preheat oven to 375F. Fill a 9-inch pie shell
and bake for 15 minutes.
