Misc Serve Cold


  • 7 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons sweetener of your choice (I used Now Foods powdered stevia)


Step 1
Place yolks, butter and lemon juice in a double broiler. If you don't have a double broiler like me, I placed my stainless steel bowl over a pot of a simmering water.
Step 2
Keep whisking the yolks mixture to prevent it from curdling. It takes about 10 minutes. The mixture will be done once it feels sticky. Since we only used the yolks, the mixture might feel a bit differently from the ones that called for whole eggs.
Step 3
Remove the bowl from heat and let it cool to room temperature. It's best to refrigerate the curd prior applying it to your cake or pie.
