Lemon Curd

I had a ton of lemons I had to use up and found a lemon curd recipe on Good things catered, Katie’s blog. I knew my mom loved lemon anything and she was visiting, so I thought I would whip it up. Just be careful and keep the temp low and cook slow…Don’t speed up the cooking process!! I also doubled the recipe! Here is the original recipe!


From Katie’s Blog:

Lemon Curd

5 egg yolks
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
Grated zest of 2 lemons
6 Tbsp (3/4 stick) unsalted butter

-In a heavy saucepan, combine the egg yolks and sugar and whisk vigorously for 1 minute.
-Add the lemon juice and zest and whisk for 1 minute more.
-Set the pan over low heat and cook gently, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
-Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the butter. Let cool, stirring occasionally.
-Cover tightly and refrigerate before using.
-Makes about 1 cup.

Add to scones, vanilla cupcakes, muffins, desserts, top vanilla cookies, add to tarts, etc…Very good addition to many desserts and morning treats!
