Post Lemon Curd

I found this on cooks.com & made it today. Overall, it's pretty good, but not as much lemon flavor as I would have liked. If anyone has another recipe, I'd love to try it!

1C. sugar
3 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1/2C(1 stick) butter cut into pieces
1/2C fresh lemon juice
2Tbsp. grated lemon peel

Whisk all ingredients together in a heavy medium saucepan over low heat until butter melts.Cook until mixture thickens to consistency of lightly whipped cream, whisking constantly, about 5 minutes. Pour into bowl, cover & refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.

Oh, and I wonder if more lemon zest would help it be zippier?

Anyone have any good uses for lemon curd? I had some but didn't know what to do with it.

Lemon crud!! Oh stop girl, you are making my sides ache!

Rainee, try it in tart shells, or in thimble cookies. Yum.

We like it on pancakes and rolls and we've been known to hide in the closet and dip snickerdoodle cookies in it. Yummmmers!

I'm using it to top slices of sour cream poundcake & the putting sliced strawberries on top of that. It can also be used as a filling for cakes. If you go to www.cooks.com & do a serch for lemon curd, it brings up several recipes using it.
