Expert Tips

  • Lemon curd is made from eggs, sugar, butter, lemon juice and zest. It's a thick, opaque mixture with a concentrated tart-and-tangy lemon flavor. Traditionally, lemon curd is spread on scones; it also makes a delicious pie or tart filling. Look for it next to the jam, jelly or pie filling in the grocery store.
  • About 1 cup of lemon pie filling can be used in place of the lemon cured. Because the lemon flavor of the pie filling will be less concentrated, you may want to spoon any remaining filling on the cake cubes before topping it all with cream.
