Lemon curd is such a delicious treat! It is silky and rich, and tastes like sunshine. I’m always surprised when I make it at how easily and quickly it is ready. You’d think something as indulgent and luxurious as lemon curd would be really finicky and temperamental, and require lots of steps and special tools. But it is ridiculously simple! And ridiculously tasty! And just…special. That’s a lot to live up to, right?!
Possibly the best thing of all about lemon curd is how many delightful treats it can be paired with! It can be spread atop a sweet crust to make lemon bars, tucked into buttery cookies, sandwiched between the layers of a tall and luscious cake, covering a creamy cheesecake…the list of delicacies is truly endless. But why are you still reading? You should be out whipping up a batch of lemon curd!
