    Awesome...extra lemons all of the time and I love the idea of not using any eggs! I buy this all of the time at Trader Joes but prefer to do my own from home when possible. Great recipe just in time to make for the holidays and special gifts! Thanks...rockin post!

    Delicious! I made this and folded it into a whipped cream and then served it with a lavender pound cake. SO good! And super easy! Thank you!

    Try adding a bit more cornstarch to the slurry, or add a tablespoon of tapioca FLOUR to the cornstarch. Also don't overcook it as the starches lose gelling power

    I made this recipe twice, and found it to be too runny.

    This is so much quicker than the one I do. I will have try it. I use lemon curd in an almond short bread crust. Maybe I'll post it later.
