- 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar plus 2 tablespoons
- 6 tablespoons salted butter, cut into pieces
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- Storing Lemon Curd:
- Cover by laying a layer of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd (this prevents a skin from forming on the surface).
- Store in refrigerator for up to 4 weeks or store in the freezer for one year.
