  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • cup sugar
  • cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

  • How To Cook:
    1. In a heavy 1- to 2- quart saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, lemon juice and egg yolks.

    2. Cook over the lowest possible heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens enough to heavily coat the back of a spoon.

    3. Do not let the mixture boil or the egg yolks will curdle.

    4. Pour the curd into a small bowl and stir in the lemon peel. Refrigerate until ready to use.

    5. Lemon curd is used as a filling for tarts and cakes such as Swiss Roll.
