Sweet and tangy lemon curd lathered over homemade buttermilk biscuits!
Homemade Lemon Curd
When life gives you lemons, don’t settle for lemonade, make lemon curd!
Well, no one handed me lemons, but I wish someone would because I am completely on a lemon kick.
As promised when I shared this green chili frittata, I’ve added two additional quick recipes to serve with your brunch; lemon curd & buttermilk biscuits.
Anxious about making the Lemon curd? Don’t sweat it! It’s much easier than you think and can be made several days in advance.
Homemade lemon curd is so much tastier than the purchased type from the grocery store and super economical!
Are you still with me? Come on now, we’ve just about hit a home run with this easy brunch!
You know you want to avoid that Pillsbury tube of biscuits as enticing as it is to hear the whoosh of the carbon being released from the tube!
These taste best right out of the oven, but no one will complain if you make them ahead of time!
Lemon Curd Recipe With Buttermilk Biscuits
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice 2-3 lemons. Do not use bottled lemon juice.
- 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature and cut in chunks
- 1 Tablespoon lemon zest
- In a non-reactive bowl, over simmering water, whisk eggs, sugar, and lemon juice until blended. Stir constantly to prevent the mixture from curdling. The consistency should look like hollandaise sauce and will take close to 10 minutes of constant stirring. If you have a candy thermometer, you want the temperature to reach 160 F.
- Remove from the heat and place through a strainer. Add the butter, stirring until it has fully incorporated into the curd. Stir in the lemon zest. Immediately place plastic wrap directly on the curd to prevent a film (skin) from forming. Let it cool at room temperature, then refrigerate.
