Lemon Curd

I have never tried curd before, so I was not  quite sure what to expect but at the end, it looks and tastes perfect .It is really so easy to make.If you have 15 minute, make this lemon curd;you will be licking the spoon in no time :)

2 cups of sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice
2 table spoon lemon zest
4 large eggs
4 large egg yolks
3/4 cup butter


  • Place sugar in a pan over a pot of simmering water in a double boiler.Gradually whisk in fresh lemon juice.
  • Add eggs and egg yolks and continue to whisk in high heat about 10-15 minutes or until mixture thickens if it is not thickening you can add cornstarch or increase the heat and continue to whisk.
  • Add butter and continue to whisk remove pan from heat and stir in lemon zest transfer to a bowl and place plastic wrap over it .
  • The lemon curd will continue to thicken some as it cools.
  • Store refrigerated couple of  weeks.Enjoy!
