Grandpa Nasmith's Lemon Tart Filling

My sister just reminded me of an old recipe, dating back to my Great Grandfather, Mungo Nasmith.

I know bits and pieces about the man, and in an effort to learn and reveal more, I've decided to publish some of his journals that found their way into my possession. See the next post...

juice and rind of three large lemons
6 egg yolks
2-3 tsps flour
1 cup powdered sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp salt

1.  Cook granulated sugar, butter, egg yolks and lemon juice and rind until thick - stirring constantly.

2.  Cool

3.  Add salt and powdered sugar.  Stir until waxy.

Keep covered in a cool place.  Should thincken up when cold.
