Lemon Curd
Get started!


3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs (yolks only)

`1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon freshly grated lemon zest

3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

8 (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter Balls

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine eggs and egg yolks in 1-quart saucepan. Whisk in sugar and lemon zest and juice. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, 8-12 minutes or until mixture is thickened and coats back of spoon. Do not boil. Remove from heat.

  2. STEP 2

    Stir in Butter Balls, 1 at a time, until incorporated and mixture is smooth. Pour mixture through fine-mesh sieve into small bowl to remove any lumps. Press sheet of plastic wrap directly onto curd to prevent "skin" from forming. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before using.

  3. STEP 3

    Store any leftovers refrigerated in covered container up to 1 week.
