"This recipe is outstanding. I did not change a thing. The taste is tangy, yet not so tangy that your mouth stays swiveled up for too long! Lime curd was hard-to-find in my rural area, but I finally found it at Publix."

"I haven't made this yet, but am going to shortly.... I dont have any lime or lemon curd so am going to make some. Just search 'Lemon Curd' recipes on here, I'm sure you could just substitute lime juice/peel where it calls for lemon juice/peel in the Curd recipe."

"I made these using lemon curd and cream chees and a bit of confectioner's sugar. I leftout the yogurt. They are scrumptious. Don't make them too far ahead of serving them, tho. The shells do get a bit soft."

"I'm not familiar with lime curd; wonder if you could make it with Key Lime filling or isn't it the right consistency?"

"I cannot find lime curd, either. How did you make this from "scratch"?"
