Recipe type: Dessert
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 - 2½ cups sugar
  • 5-6 lemons
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • ⅓ cup butter, unsalted
  1. Beat the eggs with an electric mixer in a large saucepan until light and frothy.
  2. Add sugar and beat until incorporated.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir frequently over medium-low heat until thickened; this will take at least 45 minutes.
  4. Keep in the fridge, should keep for 2 weeks, up to 3 weeks.
Depending on how lemony your taste is, is how many lemons and sugar to add. The base of this recipe calls for 6 lemons and 2 cups of sugar; I love lemon but that recipe was a bit too acidic for me, so I added an extra ½ cup of sugar and it tasted about perfect to me!
