This Lemon Curd is a simple, sweet, tart and creamy recipe. Made with five ingredients in about fifteen minutes, this is the easiest recipe out there!
Servings 8 servings
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup salted butter cut into pats
In a small saucepan, whisk lemon juice, lemon zest, granulated sugar and eggs together.
Place pot over medium low heat and add in butter pieces. Whisk continuously for 7-10 minutes until lemon curd thickens but before it starts to boil.
Remove from heat and pour into jars. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.
RECIPE NOTE: Be sure to use a whisk that reaches all the way into the corners of the pot you're using to prevent the eggs from cooking/scorching in those corners, giving you lumps. I have found a flat whisk works great for this!
