This is a recipe I found in my grandfathers recipe box. I made it the first time simply because I happened to have all the needed ingredients. Now I make it because it tastes so yummy!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 3 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 egg yolks, beaten
- 2/3 cup milk
- 2 egg whites
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a large bowl, stir together the flour and sugar until well blended. Stir in butter until smooth. Gradually beat in the egg yolks, lemon juice and milk. In a clean glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites with an electric mixer until stiff but flexible peaks form. Fold egg whites into the lemon mixture. Transfer to a casserole dish.
Bake for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set. Serve warm or chilled.
