Reader Question: Lemon Curd?

I received a lovely jar of Lemon Curd from Trader Joe's as a gift, but unfortunately I have no idea what to do with it.



Does anyone have some ideas/recipes that uses lemon curd?

Yes, yes, I know I can Google it - but this is more fun :)   Thanks!

Not to annoyingly self-promote, but I LITERALLY just made some lemon curd for a blog post (like seriously an hour ago) and I am wondering the same thing because the fresh stuff goes bad a lot faster.

I usually put mine on english muffins, bread, oatmeal, yogurt, ice cream... yeah pretty much everything. And apparently it's good on gingerbread!

I'm a big fan on toast, breads, etc. as well. Tasty stuff!

Step one: put a spoon in the jar and scoop out some lemon curd.
Step two: eat curd off spoon.
Step three: repeat steps one and two.

Make Lemon bars. You're half-way done with the pre-made curd...

I'm with Kathy. EAT IT STRAIGHT! It's delicious! Also good on bread, bread pudding, and any other bread like substance.

Thank you for all your comments!

Kara - Wow! You really did! Let me know what you end up using it for?

Royela - YUM, thank you! That looks AWESOME.

Erin - I don't know why I don't think of it on breads, especially because I am the queen of bread right now

Kathy and Beth - hahahahaha maybe I should just have one spoon.....

M Smith - For some reason I didn't realize that you start with lemon curd to make lemon bars! I love those things - good call! :)

You can put it in thumb-print cookies--they're like regular sugar/butter cookies, but pressed down a little in the middle before they're baked all the way. Then you let them cool and add some lemon curd to the indentation (or thumb-print)! Amazing...
Note: you probably don't actually want to use your thumb to press down because they'll be really hot--a small measuring spoon (like a teaspoon) works best.

I use it in thumbprint cookies but I also serve curd of any flavor (pineapple is AMAZING) with poundcake and fruit. I make a great cream cheese poundcake and serve it with lemon curd and strawberries or blueberries - YUM!
