I got this recipe from a friend and I don't know where she got it. This is the easiest and best lemon curd ever! —Karen Brooks

What You'll Need
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1-1/3 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (Meyer lemon juice if available)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 4 large eggs
  1. Melt butter in the microwave.
  2. Beat the eggs with the lemon juice and strain into a glass bowl.
  3. Add the melted butter, sugar and lemon zest to the bowl.
  4. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Beat mixture until smooth.
  5. Microwave again on high for another 3 to 4 minutes, beating mixture smooth every minute.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set. This will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge. It also freezes well.
