“This is one of the many recipes from my grandmothers cookbook. She passed away in May of 2005 and I am recording her wonderful recipes for my family and the many generations that will follow. I hope you enjoy her recipes as much as we do. I have not made each one yet-so cooking time and servings may vary. Blessings from FOURMRANCHWIFE in Texas”

  1. Combine sugar, corn starch and salt in a large heavy saucepan; mix well. Gradually add water and lemon juice, stirring until mixture is smooth.
  2. Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored; gradually stir into lemon mixture. Add butter and cook over medium heat. Stir constantly until thick and bubbly. Cook for 1 more minute, stir constantly.
