Fresh Orange Filling
|Water||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Sugar||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Lemon juice||1⁄2 Teaspoon|
1. From orange, grate 1 tablespoon peel and squeeze 1/4 cup juice.
2. In 1-quart saucepan, stir orange peel, orange juice, water, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt until blended. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and boils; boil 1 minute.
3. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in butter or margarine. Cool filling at room temperature. (If filling becomes too thick upon standing to spread easily, stir until it reaches spreading consistency.)
