|Lemon juice||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Grated lemon rind||2 Teaspoon|
Combine cornstarch and sugar thoroughly.
Add cold water gradually and stir to blend.
Cook over medium heat until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly to keep from sticking.

Return to pan and continue to cook for 2 more minutes stirring constantly.
Remove from heat, add remaining ingredients and stir until well blended.
