  • Ready In

  1. Whisk eggs, sugar, and lemon juice in a double boiler over simmering water until mixed well, then continue to stir until thick, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Drain through a mesh sieve to get rid of lumps. Fold in butter until well incorporated. Mix in lemon zest. Cover curd and chill in the refrigerator until it has thickened, about 4 hours.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:

I doubled this and used store-bought lemon juice as opposed to freshly squeezed lemons and it was fabulous (and so darn easy!).

Great to use as a filling for cannoli shells. They were a hit at my house!
