Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd

                Lemon Curd

Decided to try my hand at one of my pastry favorites: lemon curd.  I grew to love this scone & pastry topping while on an extensive six-weeks trip through Britain in the 80’s.  I have since modified my recipe of the 80’s to be Atkins friendly.  Had it on a Muffin in a Minute for breakfast and man was it ever good!  This also makes a good cream filling between layers of vanilla cake or pound cake or for lemon mini-tarts.  I love it on a hot biscuit as well!  🙂  As lemon and lime juice is limited during Induction to 3 T. per day, this recipe is only suitable for Induction if you don’t over indulge.

Could this be used as filling for a lemon meringue pie?

It would probably be OK, but I have never used it that way. In Britain, where this item originates, it is used like a jam on crumpet and biscuits. But people use it a a variety of pastries, so it might be OK in a pie.

Can you use gradulated Splenda

Sure, Madonna. Should take about a cup, but as with all deserts like this, I recommend adding it in slowly and tasting as your go, stopping when it’s just right for your taste buds. Hope you like it!

Love lemon curd! Now I can enjoy it without sugar-high guilt; thank you, Peggy!
