Good enough to eat by the spoonful, this curd can be used as a cake or tart filling or served with scones, muffins, or fresh fruit. Super Smooth!

• Lemon curd keeps, covered and chilled, 1 week. • If substituting regular lemons, increase sugar to 3/4 cup. You may need to cut back sugar if your Lemons are really sweet [I posted this recipe.]
