This refined sugar-free lemon curd is perfect for spring and summer. I can’t help it…I’m on a lemon kick. My gluten-free Lemon Coconut Bars started the craze at my house.
When Joe gets home from work, we always talk about our day. I’m usually making dinner. He sits down at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee and we chat. When I told him I made lemon curd, he immediately went for the refrigerator. That’s not like him. He’s got more self-control than most people. He eats his dessert after dinner religiously.
One bite and he was all smiles. Then, he said, “Honey, if you put this in that really good pie crust you make and top it with meringue…” His sentence was cut short by another bite of sweet-tart lemony creaminess.
He couldn’t resist. Few things make me happier.
So, don’t be surprised if there’s a lemon meringue tart here soon. Joe usually gets whatever he asks for.
A little tip to help you when you’re making this at home – it splatters. To keep my stovetop and myself clean, I made a ‘sheild’ of sorts out of plastic wrap. It kept the lemon curd in the bowl where it belongs.
