Lemon Curd

I made this one time and it was delicious! However, I also love the store bought type just as well and since I don't eat this often, usually just buy a little jar. It's high in calories--but so-o-o good on cream scones! It's so good, along with the clotted cream, one could just eat it alone with a spoon!!

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

25 Min

Ingredients

3 tsp
lemon zest, fresh off the lemon
1/2 c
freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 c
white granulated sugar
6 Tbsp
butter cut into pieces
3
eggs, lightly beaten

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Zest off the rind of the lemon to make 3 tsp.
2
Mix lemon zest, lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan on medium heat.
3
Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Add butter and stir it until it's melted. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
4
Beat eggs into the cooled lemon mixture until well blended. Return to the heat
and cook over medium-low heat about 15 minutes until it's thickened. DON'T LET THE LEMON MIXTURE BOIL AS IT WILL CURDLE. It will continue to thicken after it's cooled. Makes about 2 cups and should be refrigerated.
