My daughter's comment was "I could just eat this with a spoon." Homemade Lemon Curd goes way beyond taste compared to a store-bought version.

Ingredients

  • juice and zest of 3 lemons

  • extra lemon juice, if necessary
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 egg
  • yolks

  • 1/2 cup (1/4 pound) cold butter, cut into pieces
