Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425°F.

Remove from heat. Stir half of hot mixture into egg yolks. Return mixture to saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, 2-3 minutes or until mixture boils and thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in 1/4 cup butter. Place plastic food wrap on surface of filling. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  5. Place jelly in bowl; microwave 15-30 seconds until jelly is melted. Cool 5 minutes.
