Easy Microwave Lemon Curd
1 cup white sugar (I added 1 1/4 cup)
1 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice (about 4-5 lemons)
zest of 3 lemons
1/2 cup butter, melted
Whisk together the sugar and eggs until smooth in a microwave safe bowl. Add lemon juice, lemon zest and butter and stir until fully incorporated. Microwave on high in one minute intervals for 5-6 minutes. Stir well after each minute. The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from microwave and push through fine mesh sieve and Store in a jar or tight seal tupperware in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks, or freeze until needed. If freezing, place in fridge over night to defrost.
To make lemon tarts, 1 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until medium peaks form. Add as much or as little of your lemon curd as you like according to taste. Pipe into mini tarts and top with fruit, and additional lemon zest if desired. Keep refrigerated until needed. EnJOY!
