Yield Makes 3 1/3 cups

Number Of Ingredients 5

8 large egg yolks, plus 2 whole eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, strained (6 lemons)
2 cups sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest


  • Strain the yolks and whole eggs and lemon juice through a sieve into a medium-heavy non-reactive saucepan. Add sugar; whisk to combine.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture thickens and coats the back of the spoon, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in the butter, one piece at a time, until fully incorporated. Stir in lemon zest. Place over a bowl of ice to bring to room temperature.
