Lemon Dressing

In celebration of Mother's Day, I am posting this recipe which was given to my Mum by her mother when she married. Hence the quaint description of the butter measurement! I have used 1 tbsp. as a pretty close equivalent. This dressing is very rich, so just one or two spoons dolloped on fruit salad is sufficient.
My grandmother also used to measure flour and any other dry ingredients with whatever china teacup was handy....but everything always turned out delicious!
