Simple Lemon Curd

This deliciously tart and not too sweet lemon curd can be whipped up in minutes.  Perfect for spreading on scones and quick breads or use it as a tart filling.  You won't be disappointed!  


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 lemons zested
  • 1/2 cup butter

In a medium size sauce pan whisk the eggs, lemon juice and sugar until combined.  Add butter and lemon peel and whisk until butter is melted.  Continue stirring over medium heat until mixture is thick and coats the back of a spoon.  Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl and allow to cool.  Cover and refrigerate once mixture has completely cooled.  Enjoy!
