This is out of my Betty Crocker Cookbook, 1956 Edition.
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup corn starch
- 1 1/2 cups water
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly. until mixture thickens and boils. Boil 1 minute. Slowly stir at least half the hot mixture into 3 egg yolks, slightly beaten. Then blend into hot mixture in saucepan. Boil 1 minute longer, sitrring constantly. Remove from heat. Continue stirring until smooth. Blend in 3 tablespoons butter, 1/4 cup lemon juice, 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel. After mixture cools a little, cover with plastic wrap and chill. Serve over cake, or use in a pie shell for lemon pie. This will make a 9-inch pie.
