Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice 
1/3 cup granulated (white) sugar
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed

In a small saucepan, heat the lemon juice and sugar together until it comes to a boil and the sugar dissolves.
In a small bowl beat together the eggs.
Temper the eggs by slowly streaming in the hot lemon juice, whisking constantly. Pour back into the pot.
Return the pot to the stove and constantly whisk over low heat until the mixture has thickened.
Continue to whisk pretty constantly over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened. 
Stir in the butter until melted. 

This is a really easy lemon curd recipe to make - it doesn't take long at all and requires only four ingredients. It can be used in a variety of applications, and has a strong citrusy flavor.
