My personal favorite dessert is anything LEMON! I just adore its tangy flavor, which is why I recently created a versatile lemon curd recipe for use in several new recipes I’ll be unveiling this summer, the first of which is this luscious grain-free lemon bar.
It takes a bit more time to make this recipe, because it’s made with freshly prepared lemon curd. However, I assure you, it’s worth the extra few minutes. Its rich, decadent flavor and light, cake-like crust make this dessert a scrumptious summertime treat! Enjoy!
Update! I also use this decadent lemon curd as a base for creating a wonderful Lemon Berry Tart and my delightful Little Lemon Custard Cups. And if you’re really a lemon lover, I highly recommend whipping up my Lemon Drop Cupcakes with Creamy Lemon Frosting – YUM!
P.S. These luscious lemon bars made it on the “Top 10 Reader Favorites of 2012!”
Step Two: Prepare the Lemon Curd Topping
If you don’t have a double boiler, just be sure to use a heat-safe glass bowl. It’s also important to make sure the water under the bowl is at a very gently simmer, not a rolling boil.
