Recipe

2 eggs

2 egg yolks

1 cup granulated sugar

2/3 cup lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon (1 tablespoon)

2 tablespoons butter

Directions

Add all the ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer except the butter. Mix until well combined.

Pour into a small saucepan on the stove on medium to low heat. Stir constantly for about 10 minutes.

Once the mixture has thickened and coats the back of a spoon turn off the heat and add in the butter.

Place a plastic wrap over it to keep it from forming a skin over the top. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Try really hard not to eat it all with a spoon!

Use it in the delicious Blueberry Lemon Icebox Cake.
