Refrigerated, you don't need cornstarch to make it set for a pie. I like to make tarts out of this with a sweet butter crust.

Sweet Butter Crust
2 tbs sugar
2 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
stir together well
cut in
1/2 cup cold butter
add
1/2 cup ice cold water
allow to rest for 30 min before rolling out.
YUM!!

I guess joy is where you find it!
I used to be allowed to scrape the bowl after the cake mix had gone into the baking tin. I expect children are not allowed to do that these days due to the danger of food poisoning from the raw eggs in the cake mixture.

How kids miss out these days.

Returning to lemon curd - here's a recipe for lemon curd cookies

Mrs Darlington's | Recipes | Curd | Mrs darlingtons legendary lemon curd almond butter biscuits

"mrsdarlingtons.com" is a brand of commercial lemon curd but you'd be hard pressed to tell it from home made (and Mrs Darlington actually exists. She and her daughters run the company in Crewe in Cheshire - about 30 miles from where I live).


The cookies are divine. You could use your own home made lemon curd.

I have had some wonderful lemon squares. They seem to be solidified lemon curd. I'm pretty sure there is no flour in them. They are usually served covered in powdered sugar. Does anyone have a recipe for that?

Is this what you are talking about TaxLady? They do have flour, though. They are really good but quite sweet.

I think I like Alex's recipe better. It doesn't sound as sweet.

I forgot they had a bottom crust. I guess 1/4 cup/4 oz isn't a lot of flour for the lemon part and that is why they are still translucent.

I will give these a try when I have more spoons. I have had them at potlucks and had to make an effort not to be a pig.

If we don't hear from you , we will know what you are doing. My problem with anything lemon is being Miss Piggy. There is no controlling me. If I don't have a spoon, knife or fork, I will use my fingers.

butter, egg, lemon, recipe

Lemon Curd a la PF Lemon Curd Recipe: 3 large eggs 1/3 cup (80 ml) fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons) (do not use the bottled lemon juice) 1 tablespoon (4 grams) finely shredded lemon zest 3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated white sugar 4 tablespoons (56 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature and cut into small pieces In a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water ,whisk together the eggs, sugar, and lemon juice until blended. Cook, stirring constantly (to prevent it from curdling), until the mixture becomes thick (like sour cream or a hollandaise sauce) (160 degrees F or 71 degrees C).This will take approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately pour through a fine strainer to remove any lumps. Cut the butter into small pieces and whisk into the mixture until the butter has melted. Add the lemon zest and let cool. The lemon curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Cover immediately (so a skin doesn't form) and refrigerate for up to a week. Makes 1 1/2 cups (360 ml). 3 stars 1 reviews
