-of a lemon
2 oz Butter
4 Eggs beaten
Set oven to 400/F or Mark 6. Line a 7 inch flan dish with the pastry. Put
the lemon rind and juice, butter and sugar into a saucepan and heat gently
until the sugar has completely dissolved, stirring as little as possible.

brush the edges of the pie with milk to glaze. Cook for 10 minutes, then
reduce the oven temperature to 350/F or Mark 4 for a further 15 to 20
minutes until the filling is set and the pastry lightly golden. Serve hot
or cold with cream.
