Every time I have many lemons in my fridge I use them to make this simple and easy lemon curd recipe. You can use this lemon curd in any dessert like cheesecake, pavlova, pancakes or waffles. The reason I like to make lemon crud is that you can store it in the fridge for 2 weeks in a jar and you can use it whenever you want or need.
My lemon curd is so creamy and full of flavor that sometimes I have to eat a spoon or two just before pouring into the tart.
As I said before this is a simple and easy recipe but you need to be patient because you need to whisk constantly the mixture for about 10-15 minutes. Put the lemon zest and juice, eggs, Erythritol (or any sweetener of your taste) and vanilla (this makes the taste of lemon curd more richer) in a small saucepan and whisk until everything is combined and smooth. Then add coconut oil and continue to whisk. You can’t forget to whisk the mixture the entire time. When the mixture is thickened and the color turns slightly lighter the lemon curd is ready.
Let the lemon curd rest a few minutes before you pour it into your crust tart. Put the tart for an hour in the fridge before you serve.
To make the perfect crust you have to make sure to mix very well with all the ingredients before pressing the dough into the pan as evenly as possible before pricking holes into the dough with a fork. Let the crust cool completely before putting the filling into it.
