Mix sugar and flour, add the boiling water slowly and boil until clear, stir frequently. Add butter, the yolks of eggs beaten lightly and lemon. When the mixture is cool, place on a baked crust, Plain Pastry. The whites of eggs may be beaten stiff and stirred with the custard when taken from the stove, or it may be mixed with four tablespoons powdered sugar, spread on top and baked a delicate brown.
