    **Mandy**'s Note:

    I love lemon curd or lemon butter as we call it here in Oz but it's quite fattening so I went searching for a lighter version and found this on a website called Bakingsheet. Recipe can easily be increased.

      You will not miss the butter in this curd recipe. I like this just as well as the recipe I use that calls for butter. I did not add the vanilla because I want to taste all that lemon goodness. This was the perfect amount to fit into the Gerber infant food container, the larger one of the two sizes. I'm sure it will be gone by tomorrow night. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game

      This is my first time making curd and I'm thrilled with the end result. It is delicious and I love that it is lower in fat because there is no butter in it. I used this to "save" some leftover lemon cake which was just a tad dry. This made it taste marvelous again. Thx so much **Mandy**!
