I think Colorado is a little bipolar this time of year. Yesterday was nearly 70 degrees; and my kids were outside playing until 6:30. It was so nice outside that even I didn’t want to come in. Today however is around 30 degrees and it is snowing. It drives me a little crazy. I am so ready to move on to warmer weather. Lemon always seems to symbolize spring. Don’t get me wrong I love lemon year round, but it really seems to freshen up anything. This super simple and quick Lemon Sauce goes great on ice cream, cakes or just with a spoon of course.
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1 Tablespoon lemon zest
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tablespoons butter
Mix sugar and cornstarch in 1-quart saucepan. Gradually stir in water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Serve warm or cool. Store covered in refrigerator up to 10 days.
