10 Uses for: Lemon Curd

Monday, February 11, 2013



Lemon curd--a tangy kitchen staple. Sunshine in a jar on bleak wintry days. It's such a cinch to whip up and it has dozens of uses. Since I make so many macarons, I'm always looking for new ways to use up egg yolks (that don't involve baking gallons of ice cream!). Lemon curd is perfect for this!


So lemon curd is great on its own, but it's even better these 10 ways:
1. Sandwiched as a filling for lemon macarons
2. Baked into a moist poundcake
3. Frozen as a base for lemon sorbet
4. Spread on warm scones, (American) biscuits or toast
5. Mixed into tangy lemon curd cookies a la Nigella Lawson (How to be a Domestic Goddess)
6. Piped into homemade sugar donuts in place of jam
7.  Dolloped into the center of lemon poppy seed muffins
8. Combine with tarragon and warm up to use a sauce for fish
9.  Layered in between pieces of sponge cake
10. Thinned with a little bit of vodka, warmed and drizzled over a vanilla ice cream sundae, topped with whipped cream

How do you use lemon curd?
