Lemon Curd
Ingredients:
2 cups granulated sugar
12 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 cup lemon juice
2 Tablespoons grated lemon peel

Directions:
In a medium saucepan, blend sugar and egg yolks with a wire whisk until smooth. Add lemon juice in a thin stream, stirring constantly.

Cook over low heat, stirring continually so the eggs do not cook solid. Make sure that it does not boil.

When the mixture coats the back of a spoon, it is ready.

Remove from heat and cool slightly. Stir in butter and lemon peel. Cool completely and serve in tart shells or with scones or shortbread. less
