I make lemon curd all the time for work, it is delicious. and easy!

right now I am making a Meyer Lemon Cream, you cool it down to 140 F before adding the butter, so it stays in emulsion.

1 1/4 C meyer lemon juice
2 C sugar
6 eggs
2 yolks

mix together, heat to 180 F in a double boiler, cool to 140

put into blender and slowly add 1 pound of butter

cool and serve

There's a bakery in SF called Tartine that makes a really great tarte au citron

I made lemon curd and it was surprisingly easy!
Would you all hate me if I said I didn't much like that lemon meringue pie thing from Tartine (haven't tried the tarte au citron)

Damn I haven't had lemon meringue pie in such a long time.

in my experience the Tartine lemon merinque is serviceable but not spectacular, also does not age well after the first day.

I haven't had the meringue but then I'm not really much of a meringue fan

it's troo that lemon curd codes somewhat "fancy" in the US. not sure why, as lemon bars and meringue pies are common & very similar. always want it to be a bit more astringent.

Meringue needs to be eaten fresh the same day. Loses it's 'fluff' if it's left longer.

Lemon curd is pretty easy to make, fwiw. Not pesto easy, but.

I tell you what I really like: donuts with lemon curd filling instead of jam.

Sometimes if I was depressed after a day at work in my old IT support hell job I'd buy four and eat them in one evening.
