Melt butter in small saucepan; blend in flour and pepper. Cook and stir over medium heat until smooth and bubbly, about 1 mintue. Gradually add milk. Cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Blend a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks. Return yolk mixture to saucepan, blending well. Cook until mixture bubbles, about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. stir in lemon juice and mustard.
