Pie Fillings and Curds

Curds and fillings

Key lime pie filling/Curd:
3 egg yolks
2 teaspoons lime zest
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
2/3 cup freshly squeezed Key lime juice, or store bought

Combine the key lime juice, zest, and sweetened condensed milk in a sauce poit over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Beat egg yolks until smooth. While that is heating, Pour half of pot contents into te beaten yolks while whisking vigorously. Reduce heat to lowest setting. Whisk yolk mixture back into the pot, stirring until it Starts to thicken. Pour into a graham cracker crust for key lime pie.

Lemon Meringue pie Filling:

Prepare the remaining recipes in the same fashion as for the key lime filling. When the curd begins to thicken, pour into clean mason jars, and refrigerate. The curd will get firmer as it chills.
