Lemon Sauce to Put on your Gingerbread

This one is from my cousin Catherine, and she says it's a tradition on the Obray side of the family to pour lemon sauce on your gingerbread. It sounds divine, so I thought I would post it. I might try it sometime...just a bit because it's loaded with sugar!

Thanks Catherine!

Lemon Sauce

1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp lemon rind/zest (I leave out if I don't have it)
1 tsp butter or margarine
dash of salt

1/4 cup water
heaping tbsp corn starch

Combine first 6 ingredients and bring to boil. Mix cornstarch in water and stir into hot mixture. Cook and stir until thickened. Cool and spoon over gingerbread.
