Followed the recipe exactly...I used a mixer and blended the sugar and butter, then added the eggs, then added the juice and zest. Then transferred to stove. Had no problems with mini pieces of scrambled eggs...however, I did pass it through a sieve to get rid of the zest once finished cooking. Make sure you keep on stiring this the whole time! Took mine at least ten minutes. After it had cooled a little, I tasted it and it was very tart so I added more sugar until it fit my personal preference. I made this recipe for a filling for a cake--mine definitely thickened up but I think it was too thin for cake filling (cake may just absorb it all). Next time I make this, I will DEFINITELY add cornstarch to make it really really thick and add more sugar...overall, a great base recipe to try :)
