Lemon Curd

Makes 2 cups, enough to fill 24 cupcakes

 

Homemade curd will keep in the refrigerator up to one week, and will keep frozen for up to three months.

1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup sugar
Grated zest of 2 lemons
6 egg yolks
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

In the top of a double boiler, whisk together the lemon juice and cornstarch. Add the sugar, zest, and egg yolks; whisk to combine.

Bring the water in the double boiler to a simmer. Using a whisk, stir the mixture until thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 20 minutes. Whisk in the butter, one or two pieces at a time. When all the butter is combined, transfer the curd to a clean bowl. Cover the surface of the curd with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator to cool.

Add the sugar, zest, and egg yolks; whisk to combine. Bring the bottom of the double boiler to a simmer. Using a whisk, stir the mixture until thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 20 minutes. Whisk in the butter, one or two pieces at a time.
