Fearless Females - March 7 - favourite recipe

The blogging prompt for March 7 - share a favourite recipe from your mother or grandmother.

My grandmother was a wonderful cook, especially with pastry. She never measured anything for pastry or scones just put amounts in a bowl and mixed. I have never been able to produce scones like Nan - her comment many times was 'you play with it too much and your hands are too hot'. 

One of her favourite recipes was for Lemon Butter, especially the recipe from her sister Dora. I loved it as well, so here it is. Do you remember having Lemon Butter?

Dora's Lemon Butter
1/2 lb sugar, juice of 3 lemons, grated rind of 1 or 2 lemons, 3 eggs, 1/4lb of butter.
Stir all together in a double saucepan till thickened. Allow to cool, fill into clean screw top jars, use as required.
