Directions:
Wash and dry lemons. Grate the zest of one of the lemons on the small holes of a grater or Microplane. Juice the lemons; there should be about 1/2 cup of juice. Beat eggs, yolks, milk and sugar together. Stir in the lemon juice and zest. Set mixture over medium-low heat and whisk until eggs are thickened and warm. Add butter a few pieces at a time, stirring until each addition is blended into the eggs. Continue stirring until mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon. When thick, pour into a bowl or glass jar to cool. Cover and refrigerate.
