Lemon Curd is a fresh, light and lemony filling or topping that goes great on cakes, cookies, cupcakes or any baked treat!
Curd. Lemon Curd. Really? Do you wonder who named this sweet, lemony, succulent nectar? Because if I could give it a name, "curd" would not be involved. More accurately, I'd name it Most Heavenly Lemony Filling On The Planet In Which I Wish To Bathe Daily. I'm not kidding, if you have never made Lemon Curd before, GO MAKE IT. You will squeal so loudly with excitement that your neighbors will call the police. This stuff is my crack. I could easily incorporate it into any baked good and I am just fine with eating it by the spoonful. There is really nothing better. Lemon Curd tastes amazing when paired with cookies, cakes (like this yummy Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake!), cupcakes, coffee cake or any other baked good. Use it as a decadent dip for fruit. Throw a dollop into your morning oatmeal. Spread it on a piece of toast.
It is so very easy to make, as well. It requires fifteen minutes of your time and I am personally guaranteeing that whosoever shall taste it will have the memory of it branded into their brains.
I'll be posting a Lemon Cake in the next week or so that involves Lemon Curd and that will blow your mind. Lemon Poppyseed Cake Cookies are another great way to use Lemon Curd, but you'll have to grab yourself a copy of Cookie Remix for that recipe (sorry for the tease, but not sorry because you will LOVE THIS BOOK).
However you decide to use the nectar of the gods (a good alternate title), ENJOY!
