Ingredients

  • 14 large egg yolks
  • Grated zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 1/4 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk egg yolks, lemon zest and juice, and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, until mixture is thick enough to coat spoon, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat. Add butter, one piece at a time, stirring until smooth.

  2. Pass mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; press directly on surface to prevent a skin from forming. Let cool before serving.
