3 eggs

1/3 cup sugar

1/2 cup lemon juice

Zest of 2 lemons*

pinch of salt

6 T butter  cold and diced

Whisk eggs, sugar, lemon zest, and salt in heavy saucepan until light in color. Place over medium heat and add lemon juice and butter. Stir constantly with spatula until thick and begins to bubble. Pull from heat and pour into bowl. Cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate for couple hours. Ready to serve.
