Lemon Pie Filling

Comment on this recipe

"I copied this from my late mother's 'Victoria Methodist Church Cookbook,' Victoria, Ill. It was published in 1916. It is very good."

Ingredients

1 lemon
2 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon butter
1-1/2 cups boiling water
Baked 8-inch pie shell

Instructions

Grate rind and squeeze juice from lemon. Beat egg yolks. Mix sugar and cornstarch and add to beaten egg yolks. Add lemon juice and rind. Stir together. Add butter and boiling water. Stir as water is added. Cook 3 to 5 minutes to thicken. Pour filling into pre-baked 8-inch pie shell. The egg whites may be used for meringue if desired.
