Pink Lemon Curd

This is an easy recipe for lemon curd. Even though I used pink lemons, it can also be made with regular lemons.

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter room temperature
  • cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 3 eggs


  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together butter and sugar with a hand mixer or stand mixer until the butter is broken down into small pieces.
  • Add in eggs one at a time and mix well.
  • Lastly, add in the lemon juice and lemon zest and mix.
  • Pour the mixture into a sauce pan and heat over low heat.
  • Continually mix until the butter melts and you have a smooth mixture. Increase the heat to medium heat and stir continuously for 3-5 minutes to thicken the curd. You can tell the curd is done if you run a finger through the curd on your spoon and the trail your finger created stays fully formed.
  • Empty the curd into a jar and put into the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.
