I'm making Lemon Tiramisu tomorrow and need lemon curd in the mix. I chose this recipe because it was an NZ one and I know the chef-having never made lemon curd before, I had no other reason to choose the recipe. I'm glad I did because it turned out super simple to make the half quantity, and to make, and it tastes great. I could just sit and scoff the bowl right now and ner mind the tiramisu!

I used half sugar and half splenda. And microwaved it stirring often for 10 minutes. Then when it was colder, I put it in a pie crust. So I had lemon pie and it was so yummy. Texture was perfect and the taste also. Thanks WiGal :) Made for Rookie tag game
