Sweet Lemon Sauce

This easy microwaved sauce is a terrific topper for ice cream or a rich dessert such as Christmas Carrot Pudding.

Sweet Lemon Sauce:

1 c. water
2 tbsp. cornstarch
½ c. light brown sugar
Juice and zest of one lemon (see Note)

Combine all ingredients in microwave-safe 4 c. measure or bowl. Cook on high power 3-to-4 min. until thickened and smooth, stirring twice.

Note: To extract the maximum amount of juice from a lemon, place it in very hot water for several minutes before rolling it on a flat work surface in advance of use.
