Lemon Curd

I love lemon everything.  It’s one of my favorite flavors in baked goods and cooking.  I wanted to make some lemon curd to fill my final Wilton cake for Course I.

3 egg yolks
1/4 cup sugar
5 tablesppoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons lemon zest
3 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut into 6 equal pieces)

Directions
-In a heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice until blended.
-Place over a pan of simmering water but not touching the water, and whisk vigorously until the foam disappears and the mixture is very thick, about 10 minutes.

-Whisk in the butter until melted.

-Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is very thick, about 5 minutes more.
-Remove from the heat and whisk for 2 minutes.
-Cover with plastic wrap placed directly on the curd; set aside to cool.
