Lemon Pudding

I love the middle of a lemon meringue pie.  This is the "pudding" recipe out of my favorite pie.  I may need to double it, depending on if the Lambies enjoy the dessert or not.  It's for a 9" pie, so isn't TOO much. 

Lemon Pudding

In a medium saucepan, whisk together: 
1 cup sugar, 
2 Tbsp flour, 
3 Tbsp cornstarch, 
1/4 tsp salt

Stir in 1 1/2 cups water, 2 lemons’s worth of lemon juice and their zest.

        Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to boil. Stir in 2 Tbsp butter. Place 4 egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of hot sugar mixture. Whisk egg yolk mixture back into remaining sugar mixture. Bring to a boil and continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat. Move to a glass bowl, chill, covered, and serve.
