Winner, Loser, or Meh
This is simply divine. So much simpler, easier, and foolproof than the double boiler stove method. Three of us ate warm spoonfuls while making love sounds. Uncle Meat & Potatoes and I had visions of eating this warm, slathered over shortbread, during tomorrow night's continued American Idol tryouts. Auntie EQ suggested we mix it with Greek style yogurt because "it would be more healthy". I scowled. Uncle Meat & Potatoes announced he would pick up 'Nila Wafers on the way home from work. Accepting that she was outnumbered, Auntie EQ came to her senses and reached for her privately printed family recipe collection which has a top secret authentic Scottish Shortbread recipe, one that came over on the immigrant's boat. (Cheat: The secret ingredient is rice flour) Living for tomorrow!
I used a 5 1/2-6 quart crock for this
- Juice and zest of 3 large lemons, unwaxed (Like the ones from the backyard)
- 1 cup sugar
- 8 Tbls butter
- 4 eggs
