I loved the lemon curd and thought it worked really well with the sweeter fruits, but was not a fan of the sugar cookie crust. I think if I were to do this one again, I would go with a much less sweet crust.
I thought this recipe was good, but I did have a couple of problems with it. I like lemon flavored things, and the lemon curd in and of itself was good, but was extremely sour, and I thought that it overpowered the fresh fruit. It was not hard to make, and the presentation was beautiful. But I would have liked to enjoy the taste of the fruit more without the lemon flavor outshadowing it. The lemon stands out and the fruit kind of takes a back seat in this dish. Next time, I would use just a tiny bit of the lemon curd.
This is fantastic. Everyone who tried it wanted the recipe. I used a kiwi in place of a plum as a matter of personal preference. Beautiful presentation and wonderful, guilt-free taste. Thanks for posting!!
