Easy Lemon Curd

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PumpkinDK

This is delicious as a spread for toast or scones, to sandwich together a sponge cake or as the filling for powder puffs. It keeps for weeks if well sealed and refrigerated after opening.

I remembered seeing this in the Pick A Chef thread & was so excited to try it when I needed lemon curd for recipe #366112. It was super easy. I've never made lemon curd before & it turned out delicous. My photos are not even comparable to Bonnie's so I'm not going to post over it. :) Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe, Pumpkin!
