This lemon curd recipe is wonderful. It’s incredibly rich, so a little goes a long way. Try it with berries and whipped cream, in crepes, or simply by the spoonful!

Ingredients
8 egg yolks
1/2 cup lemon juice
Zest of one lemon (optional)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup low-carb sweetener or sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted and cooled for five minutes

Directions
In medium bowl, whisk egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla and sweetener until mixture is very smooth.
Add melted butter and whisk until smooth.
Using a double boiler or a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water, cook mixture over very low heat, stirring regularly, until mixture thickens – about 10 minutes.
Enjoy!
