How to Make Lemon curd tarts

  • Combine lemon juice, peel, butter and sugar in a double boiler over simmering water, stirring continuously until butter has melted.
  • Add beaten eggs to lemon mixture, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon.
  • Continue to stir over medium heat until the mixture is quite thick - it should coat the back of the spoon while taking care not to overcook or it will separate.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Refrigerate so that the curd can cool and thicken.
  • Pipe the curd in tarts with a piping bag, garnish with a lemon slice and serve chilled.
