- 2 cups water
- 1/2 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- Zest of 1/2 lemon
- 3 large egg yolks, beaten
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- Bring water to a boil in a large, heavy bottomed saucepan. Remove from heat and allow to cool for around 5 minutes. In a separate bowl whisk sugar, cornstarch and lemon zest together, then add mixture slowly to hot water, whisking constantly until incorporated.
- Place mixture over medium heat, continuing to whisk until it comes to a boil and becomes very thick.
- Add about half of the hot mixture to beaten egg yolks and whisk until smooth. Carefully whisk warmed yolks into pot and continue cooking and whisking until mixture comes to a boil.
- Remove from heat and add butter, lemon juice and vanilla, stirring until combined. Allow to chill completely.
- In popsicle molds, layer the graham crackers, yogurt and lemon pie filling, alternating ingredients until mold is full. Freeze until firm.
