How do I use lemon curd?

My daughter bought me a jar of lemon curd. For what I don't know! What can I use it for?

The filling of a tart. Have it in between a sponge with cream. On bread or toast. Use in a Swiss roll. On a hot scone. As a filling between biscuit halves. Perhaps thinned down as a sauce.

Pretty much, you could substitute lemon curd where you would normally use jam, although not in all instances.

Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Oh man... mix it up with some Marscapone cheese, and fresh fruit(Blueberry, peaches, etc.) stick it in a graham cracker pie crust and chill, then top with fresh whipped cream....

There's a local compay that sells lemon curd, among other things, as a sauce for pound cake.

I have a recipe for cookies that use lemon curd. They're sugar cookies with coconut flakes (totally optional but I like it) that you make an indentation in and drop lemon curd in the center. Then when they're done baking, you can drizzle melted white chocolate over them. Mmm now I want to bake!

My son loves lemon curd. Great on bread or toast or even in a sandwich. The others have some good ideas as well.

We adore lemon curd... aside from making tarts/pies with it, we also pile it on waffles, pancakes, toasts, plain biscuits, or just scoop it out with a spoon...
