I Think You Should Make It.......ASAP!!

May 14, 2009

I do love LEMONS!
It must be because of the wonderful Arizona citrus
I grew up with.

When you ask for LEMONS in Mecixo....
you get this.....a LIME.....it is called a Limon.
There is no such thing as a yellow LEMON in Mexico.

So, on a recent trip to Arizona I made sure to bring some back with me.
To enjoy;)!
Also for our Easter Dinner/The Boy's 16th birthday party...
I made 8..yes....EIGHT
This is a great recipe....You will love it!

1 9" pie crust, cooked and cooled
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 T. cornstarch
3 T. flour
dash of salt
1 1/2 c. hot water
3 slightly beaten egg yolks
(save the egg whites of the meringue)
2 T. butter
1/2 t. lemon zest
1/3 c. lemon juice

In a sauce pan, mix sugar, cornstarch, flour, and salt. Gradually add hot water stirring constantly. Cook mixture until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 2 minutes. Temper egg yolks, add to mixture and return to a boil. Cook for 2 minutes. Add butter, zest and lemon juice, mix well. Fill pie shell with lemon mixture. Top with meringue, be sure to seal
all edges with meringue. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.
