    1      Large         Lemon
      3/4  Cup           Butter Or Margarine
    1      Cup           Sugar
    3                    Eggs
 
 >From lemon, grate 1 tablespoon peel and squeeze 3 tablespoons
 juice.
 
 In double boiler over hot, not boiling, water, or in heavy
 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stir lemon juice, lemon peel,
 butter or margarine, and sugar until butter melts.
 
 In small bowl, beat eggs slightly. <- Do not skip this step.
 Add eggs to butter mixture and cook, stirring constantly,
 until mixture is very thick and coats the back of a spoon
 well, about 15 minutes (do not boil or mixture will curdle).
 Refrigerate.
