Egg and Lemon frosting(for Alix)

Ingredients:

1 c sugar
2/3 c lemon juice(or less if you dont want it too tangy)
2 eggs
4 egg yolks
6 tbs butter

method:

Combine sugar,lemon juice in 2-quart saucepan.Cook over medium heat until sugar is dissolved(1 to 2 minutes).Reduce heat to low.Beat eggs and yolks in a small bowl with wire whisk.Stir small amount of hot sugar mixture into egg mixture using wire whisk.Gradually stir egg mixture into hot sugar mixture.Continue cooking,stirring constantly,until mixture is thickened(6 to 8 minutes).Remove from heat,stir in 6 tbs butter,1 tbs at a time with wire whisk.

this frosting is great on sponge cakes,you could also use it as a tart filling,works great with that,or make small tartlets and fill them with it with some grated lemon rind on top.

YAY! Thanks sarah! I am going to make this today. It is supposed to be warm and sunny today, but instead it is warm and gloomy looking. I think I will try it on a chocolate pound cake. Think that will work out ok?
