Key Lime Curd

adapted from Meyer Lemon Curd


  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces


In a medium heatproof bowl, whisk the lemon juice, sugar, and eggs together until well combined. Add the butter and set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Cook, whisking almost constantly, until the curd has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon and registers 160 F on an instant read thermometer. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer into a second heatproof bowl. Allow to cool slightly, then press a piece of plastic wrap against the surface and store in the refrigerator. The curd will keep for a week.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
