J'aime bien~ Les Citrons~
I really like lemons~
I mentioned I had made Dorie Greenspan's sweet tart dough..the recipe is in Sunday's Valentine's Day post~It is beyond a doubt delicious..like a shortbread cookie crust..I could eat just the whole tart with nothing in it~
But..a friend came for dinner Saturday night so I filled it w/ liquid gold~
Lemon Curd ..microwave lemon curd I made a few days earlier and kept in the fridge~
I am so glad she likes lemons as much as we do..she told me she loved it~
I was happy.
I am sure I posted this quick and easy lemon filling before..I just can't find it~
1 cup white sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice
3 lemons, zested
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter. Cook in the microwave for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the microwave, and pour into small sterile jars. Store for up to three weeks in the refrigerator.
One of the reasons I started la Table De Nana..was to keep my recipes in one place and organized..now it's like my recipe folders and drawers:(~
