Serves 1 1/2 cups | Prep Time 10 minutes | Cook Time 10 minutes

Ingredients

Zest of one lemon
¾ cup Granulated sugar
¼ cup unsalted Butter, softened
2 Eggs, plus one egg yolk
1/3 cup Lemon juice
Dash of salt


Add the zest of one lemon to 3/4 cup sugar. Cream this mixture with 1/4 cup softened butter. Add 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk, one at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Beat in 1/3 cup lemon juice and a dash of salt.


Place the lemon mixture in a medium-sized heavy saucepan and heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture just comes to a simmer and starts to thicken (about 10 minutes). Remove from heat, cover and chill until needed.

Notes

I was making a Braided Lemon Bread recipe and needed some lemon curd. Since I don't like a really sour lemon taste, I chose to make my own. This stuff is great on just about anything...toast, pancakes, waffles. Keep it covered and chilled and use it within a few days.
