That sounds to me a bit like lemon curd, which I make now and then - it
involves melting lemon juice, butter and sugar together and binding with
eggs.  Very nice, and not difficult or lengthy to construct.  (Recipe
available on request.)

You can eat it on bread or toast if you're so inclined, or (better, in my
view), spread it on scones or shortbread, possibly with cream if you're
being really decadent. :-)
