This was fabulous! It was not difficult at all.
The recipe was a bit thin for my taste but a tablespoon of cornstarch will fix that. Lovely flavor. Makes a great filling for lemon tassies with whipped cream on top.
This works well with any recipe that calls for lemon curd. This saves a money and a trip to the supermarket. My family loves it on gingerbread! Thanks to the TOH test kitchen for the recipe!
Awesome recipe! Delicious and very quick and easy to prepare.
I am a huge lemon fan, and this lemon curd was fast, easy and delicious.
