To make filling: In a heavy saucepan combine the egg yolks, sugar, butter and the lemon juice.

Cover and chill.

Line the bottom of a greased jelly roll pa n, 15½ by 15½ by 1-inch, with foil.

Grease the foil and dust with flour knocking out excess.

In a bowl with an electric mixer beat egg yolks, ¼ cup granulated sugar, zest and vanilla until thick and pale and mixture forms a ribbon when beaters are lifted.

In a large bowl with cup lean beaters beat egg whites until they hold soft peaks.

Beat in the remaining sugar and gradually beat egg whites until they hold stiff peaks.

Stir ⅓ of th e whites into the yolk mixture to lighten it and fold in remaining whites gentl y but thoroughly.

Sift flour, salt and cornstarch over batter and fold until batter is just combined.
