This is your basic lemon curd which is used as filling in a sandwich cookie, or in tarts or as a spread.


thanks for all the curd recipes. With the holidays right NOW, these are terrific additions to savories at parties. Wonderful with brioche, super with peanut butter in the middle of the night. lucas hess
