Lemon Yogurt Decadence

Another Lemon something recipe! I really am almost done (I think)


I purchased this Greek yogurt for a recipe that I made and will post soon. In the meantime I wanted a little snack and had some lemon curd in the fridge so I threw it together and WOW. This is my new favorite yogurt.


The Greek Gods - Traditional Plain Greek Yogurt - YUM

Mixed with the Lemon Curd - great snack or even dessert.


Here's the Lemon Curd recipe I used for this little dish:

1/2 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 1/2 cups superfine sugar (again - the regular is fine as well)
1 stick of butter (at room temperature)
4 large eggs (at room temperature)
1 tablespoon lemon zest

TO DO:
Cream the butter and sugar - then slowly drizzle in the lemon juice. Add the eggs one at a time. Mix all of this just until combined. Pour all of it into a saucepan and cook about 10 minutes - stirring constantly. Mixture will thicken and get glossy. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

note: this is not the same lemon curd recipe I use for cookies and bars. that recipe link follows here   http://www.tateskitchen.com/2011_02_01_archive.html 

I did not pay attention to the exact ratio of yogurt to lemon curd. I think it was two spoonfuls of yogurt to maybe a spoonful and a half of curd. mix this however you like it best. But do give it a try. It's delicious.
