    Northern_Reflectionz's Note:

    This recipe came over with my grandmother from England. It is great as a spread on toast, or use for filling in frozen pre-baked tart with whipped cream for a quick and easy dessert for unexpected guests.

      I never realised Lemon Cheese was so easy to make and after trying this recipe, I will never buy it again! It is quite zingy which is what I prefer.
      This is so scrumptious that I had to stop myself from going to the fridge every 5 minutes to go and try one more teaspoon of it!
      Thank you so much for sharing it.

      This tastes just the same as a gourmet lemon curd I buy (or should I say used to buy!) and it's a fraction of the cost. This lemon cheese is very tasty and can be used in many different ways, however I prefer it spread on warm toast. Before putting it into a jar I strained it to make the curd super smooth.
