 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2                    Lemons -- grated peel only
      1/2   c            Lemon juice
      1/2   c            Sugar
    3                    Egg yolks
 
   GRATE THE LEMON CAREFULLY, avoiding the white area
   under the skin, which has a bitter flavor. Beat the
   egg yolks well and pour them through a strainer into a
   small non-corrosive saucepan. Then add the lemon peel,
   the lemon juice and the sugar. Cook over medium-low
   heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens.
   Take care not to let it boil or the yolks will curdle.
   Set the lemon curd in the refrigerator to cool. When
   cooled, use immediately or cover with plastic wrap and
   refrigerate. Makes 1 Pie
