- 3 egg yolks
- zest of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 6 Tb sugar

- Put egg yolks, lemon zest, lemon juice, and sugar in a small saucepan. Whisk well. Place over medium heat and stir constantly with wooden spoon until mixture coats back of spoon. This should take about 7 minutes.
- Remove mixture from heat. Add butter a little bit at a time, stirring well until butter melts and all ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
