This recipe comes from England by way of my family.
My most often way to use lemon curd is a filling small pastry cups. (Lemon Tarts) )see recipe I posted for Pecan tarts for the pastry cup recipe)
Recently I used as a filling in my lemon cake (which I have posted), and it makes a very good cake, awesome!
Hope you enjoy...
